    Between 1892 and 1954, 12 million people passed through Ellis Island upon arriving in America, offering a common heritage to millions more in later generations.

    Newtown Historical Society will look at the history and traditions of Ellis Island in a presentation by Arthur Gottlieb on Monday, April 14, beginning at 7:30 pm. The program will be in the meeting room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street.
