$1,000 Reward for Annie Moore of Ellis Island Fame

Megan Smolenyak is offering a $1,000 reward to the genealogist who can prove what happened to the Annie Moore who was the first immigrant processed at Ellis Island. Here’s an excerpt from her blog:

I’m offering $1,000 for the first proof of what became of Ellis Island’s true Annie Moore. This is not a joke. Those of     you who are familiar with my Honoring Our Ancestors Grants program know that I put my money where my mouth is.

I want to know the truth, and I’m hoping some great genealogists out there can unearth it. So try to solve the mystery yourself or join up with a research buddy and tackle it. For that matter, why not make it a project for your local genealogical society? Or just spread the word. Together, we can find out what happened to Ellis Island’s Annie Moore.
