    Seeking Board of Special Inquiry records for Sydney Bass

    J Seron Newbie

      Could you please help me locate Board of Special Inquiry records for disabled immigrants 1900 to 1912 at Ellis Island? I'm interested in who, what, and why "disabled" immigrants were allowed to enter or were rejected, both mental and physical "disabilities." For example, Sydney Bass who arrived at Ellis Island on the Adriatic from Westminster, England on January 12, 1911 is specifically a person who I'd like the BSI record for. Thank you for any help you may provide.
