How to Use the Record
To begin your search it is helpful to know the name of your ancestor and some other identifying information such the port and date or arrival or departure.
Search the Collection
To search the collection, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page. Then select the appropriate date range which takes you to the images.
Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
Using the Information
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details and lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family. For example, you can use these lists to:
- Learn an immigrant’s place of origin
- Confirm their date of arrival
- Learn foreign and “Americanized” names
- Find records in his or her country of origin such as emigrations, port records, or ship’s manifests.
- Find federal immigration records
Tips to Keep in Mind
- Download a copy of the record or transcribe the details.
- If your ancestor had a common name, be sure to look at all the entries for a name before you decide which is correct.
- Continue to search the lists to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have immigrated at the same time.
- If your ancestor has an uncommon surname, you may want to obtain the passenger list of every person who shares your ancestor’s surname. You may not know how or if they are related, but the information could lead you to more information about your own ancestors.
- If you do not find the name you are looking for check for variant spellings of their names.
- Please note that when you select an image to view, sometimes the manifest includes more than one page, and when you use the "click to enlarge manifest" link, the image that appears is not always the first page of the record. You may need to click on the "previous" or "next" links to view the remaining pages of the full manifest. .
