Presented by Mary Wickersham, sponsored by the Minnesota Genealogical Society. A virtual program from the comfort of your desk.
Knowing when and how our ancestors arrived at their settlement country adds to the narrative of their life, and may help us locate their birth region, if not yet known. This session explores how to find immigration records - naturalization records and ships' manifests – in online databases. Examples include Ancestry.com, Ellis Island and Castle Garden (New York) and Steve Morse's special search forms. Morse’s site offers efficient searches of ships' records, covering New York and many other United States ports of arrival.
