At www.ellisisland.org there is a ships list with Willy Bork, age 28, butcher, and his wife Martha Bork, age 23. They came from Berlin through Liverpool England, and arrived in New York on January 30, 1902

If you haven't been to the Ellis island site before, you can register for free to view the records.
