The Mormon Immigration Index CD is a database of approximately 93,000 immigrants who traveled from various international ports to the United States between the years 1840 and 1890.

Information in this database includes the age, country of origin, ports of departure and arrival, the company leader assigned to each voyage, and general voyage information. This index also contains transcriptions of autobiographies, journals, diaries, and letters of approximately 1,000 passengers. These immigrant accounts are linked to over 500 known LDS companies and provide a composite account of those who crossed the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to gather in Zion. Other people who took part in these voyages, but who were not members of the LDS Church, are also listed in this index.

The Index is available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and most family history centers. It is also available online at http://mormonmigration.lib.byu.edu/.
