'''To search this collection using the index:'''
 
 
 
Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.
 
 
 
For tips about searching on-line collections see the on-line video at [http://broadcast.lds.org/familysearch/2011-12-03-familysearch-search-tips-1000k-eng.mp4 FamilySearch Search Tips].
 
 
 
To begin your search it is helpful to know the full name of your ancestor and the approximate date of immigration. If you do not know this information, check the census records after 1900.
 
 
 
'''To browse this collection you will need to follow this series of links:''' <br>⇒ Select the ''"Browse"'' link in the initial search page<br> ⇒ Select the ''“NARA Roll Number - Contents”'' category 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 that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family. For example, you can use passenger lists to:
 
  
*Learn an immigrant’s place of origin
+
To begin your search it is helpful to know at least one of the following:
*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.
 
  
'''Tips to Keep in Mind:'''
+
*The name of your ancestor.
 +
*The approximate date of immigration.
 +
*The birth year and birth place of your ancestor.
 +
*Relatives' names
  
*If your ancestor had a common name, be sure to look at all the entries for a name before you decide which is correct.  
+
If you do not know this information, check the census records after 1900. Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information in the list to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if it is the correct family or person. You may need to compare several persons in the list before you find your ancestor.
*Continue to search the passenger lists to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations 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 if they lived in the same county or nearby. You may not know how or if they are related, but the information could lead you to more information about your own ancestors.
 
  
'''Unable to Find Your Ancestor?'''
 
  
*Check for variant spellings of the name.  
+
'''Search by Name by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1916084?collectionNameFilter=false Collection Page]:'''<br>
*Look for another index. Records are often indexed by local historical and genealogical societies.  
+
*Search the passenger lists year by year.

What Is In This Collection?

This collection includes passenger lists from 1907 to 1948.

The passenger lists are digital copies of the original records. The earliest records are handwritten pages. Later records are usually handwritten on pre-printed pages. The records are arranged by the date of entry into port.

This collection consists of lists for those arriving at San Pedro, Wilmington, or Los Angeles, California, 1907-1948. It corresponds to NARA Publication M1764: Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at San Pedro/Wilmington/Los Angeles, California, June 29, 1907 - June 30, 1948.

The information was supplied by the immigrant or a traveling companion (usually a family member). Incorrect information was occasionally given, or mistakes may have been made when the clerk guessed at the spelling of foreign names.

Passenger arrival lists known as customs manifests date back to 1820. Congressional action in 1891 resulted in federal immigration officials recording the immigrants’ arrival.  The passenger arrival list was used by legal inspectors to cross-examine each immigrant during a legal inspection prior to the person being allowed to live in America. Only two percent of the prospective immigrants were denied entry.
