  • Samuel Katz (1921 - 1944)
    Born on Ellis Island My Birth certificate is posted in the medical exhibit of The Ellis Island Immigration Museum -- KIA during WWII

My uncle, Sam Katz, was one of the 350-ish persons to be born on Ellis Island. His birth certificate is presented as part of the display on the island.

I've contacted the NPS at Ellis Island and they do NOT have a complete list of all that were born there. I am interested in creating a special exhibit that catalogs those that were born there and the impact that they have had on America.

Please join me in creating this list and eventually meeting up on the island for a reunion of sorts...
