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.
About Ancestry: Bringing together science and self-discovery, Ancestry helps everyone, everywhere discover the story of what led to them. Our sophisticated engineering and technology harnesses family history and consumer genomics, combining billions of rich historical records, millions of family trees, and samples from almost 10 million people in the AncestryDNA database to provide people with deeply meaningful insights about who they are and where they come from. We’ve pioneered and defined this category, developing new innovations and technologies that have reinvented how people make family history discoveries. And these discoveries can give everyone a greater sense of identity, relatedness, and their place in the world.
