Ellis Island
Posts  1 - 1  of  1
Hi. My mother came through Ellis Island when she was three with her two older sisters with her aunt and uncle. I was a member of Ellis Island for a few years still trying to find her. Ancestry had a free weekend over Labor Day so I thought I would give that a shot. Sure enough, she was listed in the National Archives in DC. The register stated that her aunt,uncle, sisters and she were aliens held for special inquiry. The code listed in that column was LPC. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT LPC MEANS? I believe it's probably because her aunt and uncle didn't have custodial documents. They were taking the girls to their parents in Michigan's UP. If anyone knows what LPC means, please respond.
