  • Inscribe your family name on the Wall - Ellis Island

It is possible to honor your ancestors who made this journey so that you could have a better life and a very fitting tribute is to have their names inscribed on the Ellis Island Wall of Honor. When the opportunity first presented itself, I entered the names of my family and have added the names of my uncles through the years. The Wall of Honor is in a perfect location - behind the main building, facing the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline.

You can do this on-line from your home or if you visit Ellis Island, you can complete the application form right there. The are currently accepting new names for another section of the wall that will be added.

The fee for adding each name is $150 and gift certificates are available also.

Address: Ellis Island
Directions: Behind the main building
