Database of individuals died in Quarantine at the Hospitals for Contagious Diseases which were located on Hoffman and Swinburne Islands in Richmond County, New York. Most of them were immigrants en route to Ellis Island who were removed from ships in the outer harbor of the port of New York by the New York State Medical Inspectors and transferred to these two hospitals. Their families would have continued on to Ellis Island for inspection and probably were detained while awaiting the disposition of the sick child or family member.

This list was compiled by reviewing all Death Certificates from November 1909 through June 1911 that were registered in Richmond County (Staten Island), NY and identifying those deaths which occurred on either Hoffman or Swinburne Islands.
