Castle Garden operated as an immigration point from 1 Aug 1855 - 18 Apr 1890. The Barge Office then became the point of entry until Ellis Island opened in 1892. The immigration information provided below was obtained from the Castle Garden website at: http://castlegarden.org/ where 92 Culbert records were found.
According to David Bromwich of The Battery Conservancy, when completed, the Castle Garden website database will contain twelve million records, including the 8.5 million people who entered through Castle Garden and the 3.5 million who entered the Port of New York either between 1820 and 1855 or between 1890 and 1892. It is not known why the information for this website indicates it includes records covering 1892-1913, which would be available on the Ellis Island website.
