Event Details


This program will be held in a hybrid format with both virtual and in-person options.

"Immigration to the United States: Passenger Lists" focuses on available records from about 1820 to 1924. We will discuss finding an ancestor's origins, various tools for locating passenger lists, how to find images and information on ships. We'll also look at examples of passenger arrival lists from 1820 to 1913 to see how the lists have changed over time and what information can be found on the lists, including examples of folks held for special inquiry and who were detained.
