The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation Inc. has teamed up with America Online Inc. to provide online genealogy resources to consumers.


AOL will act as the exclusive Internet service provider sponsor of the foundation's American Family Immigration History Center at Ellis Island.


Consumers now can access the foundation's Web site across multiple America Online brands, including the AOL service, Netscape and CompuServe.


The site, accessible at AOL Keyword: ellisisland.org and via the genealogy and education areas of these online services, includes an online document database with which users can explore their family immigration histories.


Users can trace family roots, view an immigration timeline, build a family scrapbook and read immigration stories at the site, which for the first time offers access to immigration information about the 22 million people who entered America through the Port of New York and Ellis Island from 1892 to 1924.
