Ellis Island Database - Immigrants from Bilcze /Bilcze
Compiled by Susana Leistner Bloch
Note from SLB: From 1892 to 1924, 22 million immigrants and passengers came through Ellis Island and the Port of New York. The ship companies kept passenger lists called “Ship Manifests”. Below is list of people who entered the USA through Ellis Island and listed Bilcze / Bilcze Złote as their place of residence.
It is interesting to see how many variations of Bilcze/ Bilcze Złote can be found on the database. Whenever there was some doubt, I read the scanned manifest to make sure it was indeed Bilcze☺. Złote was often misread as “Stose” Because the “l” in Złote looks like a “t” and the z could be “seen” as an “s” ☺.
When you find an entry of interest, you can view the passenger record, the photo of the Ship and an actual scan of the Ship's Manifest. The ship manifest gives many details including the family member they joined and their address. It also lists nearest relative left behind in the country of origin. This is a great resource for family historians. It will often show that although the person’s last residence was Bilcze he/she might have been born somewhere else.
