Thought For The Day

History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.   Winston Churchill

Updated Passenger List Site

Back in 2012 I added  a site for researching passenger lists.  Upon checking links I discovered that the original one no longer works.  So I have updated the Link. 

This is a terrific site that has links for the United States, Canada and Mexico, 1820-1957.  Some of the links within the site refers you to Ancestry which charges a fee.  Other links are free including a NARA link. Dates vary.  Ellis Island, Barge Office and Castle Garden are free.  When you scroll down you will find “US Ports and Their Available Passenger Lists” Again scrolling down you will find US Territories, Canada and Mexico Ports.  Be sure to check out individual States for there own lists, especially  NY & New England States.

If you find a link listed on the right side of our Blog that does not work, please let me know and I will try to fix it or remove it.  Happy Researching.
