JOE BEINE’S LISTING OF PASSENGER LISTS AND IMMIGRATION RECORDS

_______________________________________________________

By searching Google you will find many indexes of passenger lists (also called immigration records or ship manifests) for ships that sailed to the United States from 1820 to the 1940s, including microfilm, CD-Roms, books and online indexes. Microfilm records listed here are available from the National Archives (NARA) and some of its branches. Most are also available from LDS Family History Centers. Some public libraries (especially genealogy libraries) may also carry these items.

Some of the indexes listed below are linked to digitized images of the passenger lists from the National Archives microfilm, which can be viewed online at Ancestry. If you are only interested in the microfilmed passenger lists for offline research see: National Archives Passenger Lists on Microfilm.
