Filling in the 1847 - 1892 gap for passenger lists to New York

Check my free online project to fill in the 1847-1892 index gap for passenger arrival records in New York.

This project consists of 3 sets of records:

1. NY Times extracts for ship arrivals and passenger names

2. Images (and some accompanying transcripts) of actual passenger lists in this time period

3. NY Almshouse records for 1855-1858 (contains year of arrival and ship name)

The complete index of NY Times years and shipping news extracts is at

Images of ships passenger lists for these Unindexed NY years are online at http://www.rootsweb.com/~ote/ships/
