In the wake of the famine, hundreds of thousands of immigrants came through the port of New York. Often they came in waves with part of the family coming over, finding a job and earning some money to send for other family members. Even if they didn't need to send for family, many needed a safe place to deposit what they had earned. The Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank helped in both cases. The records of that bank are available on Ancestry.com and in today's 5-Minute Find, Juliana Smith tells you what riches you can find in these records, and how to best use them.
