New Annie Moore Photos

Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak has another chapter in the "Search for Annie Moore."

Read her article in the online The Huffington Post titled "Historical Photo? Is This Annie Moore Arriving at Ellis Island?"

Megan shows two photos never seen before - one of a motherly Annie Moore with a daughter on her lap, and one of three youths at (what is thought to be) Ellis Island.

Read the comments to Megan's article also - Annie's grand-nephew explains more background about finding the Ellis Island photograph in the collection of photographs of the Ellis Island commandant when it first opened

Megan's previous article, "Photos of Annie Moore, First Ellis Island Immigrant: Help Solve a History Mystery" about Annie Moore in The Huffington Post discussed this photograph in much detail, but did not show the picture. There is also a pretty complete summary of the Annie Moore discovery saga in this article.
