United States Immigration Online
Ellis Island 2.jpg
Immigration Research Basics
Searching Many
Databases at Once
Major Ports
Ethnic, Nationality, Political, Religious, or Socioeconomic Groups
Immigration by State



Suggested Strategy[edit | edit source]

  1. Check the partner website indexes, as these cover many, many databases at once. The FamilySearch Historical Records databases is free to search with a free registered account. The other websites are subscription-based but can be searched for free at a Family History Center near you. Try to search each partner site because their search engines can often bring up slightly different results.
  2. If it is difficult for you to get access to the subscription databases, next try Additional Nationwide Collections Not Included in Partner Sites. These websites have a lot of overlap with the subscription websites.
  3. Search a nationality, religious, or political group collection that applies to your ancestor.
  4. Search the state collection for the first state where your ancestor lived.
  5. Read Tracing Immigrant Origins to learn about many other records that substitute for immigration records.
Immigration Online Genealogy Records
This is collection of links to United States Immigration databases and collections that include passenger lists and manifests. Includes some links to ship images and border crossing records.

The indexing of records is often an on-going project. Some collection indexes give no indication if they are a partial index or complete. If the name you are researching does not appear in an index, re-check the index at a later time or search for the record in the available original images. Some indexes are handwritten and a part of the image collection.

Partner Sites Indexing Multiple Databases[edit | edit source]

Use these search engines first to check for your ancestor in multiple databases for many ports all at once.

Collections With Nationwide Coverage[edit | edit source]
