I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

Use passenger lists to:

  • Learn an immigrant’s place of origin
  • 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
  • If your ancestor had a common name, be sure to look at all the entries for a name before you decide which is correct
  • 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

I Can't Find the Person I'm Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Check for variant spellings of the name
  • Look for an index. Records are often indexed by local historical and genealogical societies
  • Search the passenger lists year by year
  • Search the indexes of other port cities
