Needing Access to NY Passenger Lists?

Needing to access the New York City passenger-immigration lists? And you've been told that this tremendously large group of records is still waiting to be digitized/indexed? WELL!  Wait no longer.... at least for some of these records. 

The leader in FREE online resources, FamilySearch.org, has some passenger lists! "A whopping 9.3 millions images and almost 64 million names have been fully transcribed and are now searchable." So penned Joe Grandinetti in the Jun-Jul 2019 issue of Internet GENEALOGY.  These include:

  • NY Passenger Lists (Castle Garden) 1820-1891
  • NY Passenger Arrival Lists (Ellis Island) 1892-1924
  • NY Passener and Crew Lists 1925-1957
And they are all to be accessed at www.familysearch.org. Check it out!
