6/9/2014
How did your immigrant ancestors get here? They came on vessels and steamships that sailed to various North American destinations: Baltimore, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, or any of the other 90-plus US ports.

This workbook will show what information you’ll find in passenger arrival lists, how to find them, where to find immigration information when passenger lists aren’t panning out, and tips for plucking your ancestor out of a sea of other immigrants in online databases and microfilmed records. We’ll also provide a chance to practice your passenger-list skills and a worksheet you can use to track your findings and search results.
