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

Passenger Lists (index) of Immigrants Leaving United States and Arriving in Ireland and Britain (1858-1870)

These sources are generally found in the Place Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under one of the following:

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

Over 2,500 other published sources are listed in:

  • Filby, P. William. Passenger and Immigration Lists Bibliography, 1538-1900, 2d ed. Detroit, Michigan: Gale Research, 1988. (FHL book 973 W33p 1988.) Arranged by author and title. Includes index by place-names, nationalities, naturalizations, occupations, religious groups, military units, ship's name, prisoners, or indentured servants.
