Whenever I travel to speak, folks ask me about Annie Moore of Ellis Island fame. What's happened since her discovery? Has the absence of a tombstone been rectified? Well, it's taken a while, but I'm pleased to announce that there's been progress on that front:
Here's a mock-up of what's been designed. I'm happy to see that the names of the others who are buried with Annie will be included.
So now the family is in fund-raising mode. They've launched an Ante Up for Annie campaign and are aiming to raise $25,000 by this St. Patty's Day. If you're at least part Irish or you have Ellis Island ancestry, you might want to consider kicking in. Won't it be nice to finally see Annie's final resting place appropriately identified?
