There are published transcripts and indexes for some ports and dozens of ethnic groups. For example, the Family History Library has lists of:

  • Baltimore arrivals from 1820 to 1834
  • Philadelphia arrivals from 1800 to 1819
  • Irish arrivals at New York from 1846 to 1852
  • Dutch arrivals from 1820 to 1880
  • German arrivals from 1850 to 1888 (ongoing series)

These sources are generally found in the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog under one of the following:

[STATE], [COUNTY], [TOWN] - EMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION
UNITED STATES - EMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION
