      NARA Makes Some Passenger Arrival Records Available Online
      This week, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
      announced that it has made available for the first time online more
      than 5.2 million records of some passengers who arrived during the
      last half of the 19th century at the ports of Baltimore, Boston, New
      Orleans, New York, and Philadelphia. The records can be accessed
      through NARA's online Access to Archival Databases (AAD).

      The records were transcribed from original ship manifests into
      electronic databases by Temple University's Center for Immigration
      Research at The Balch Institute. The Center donated the digital
      records to the National Archives. The records are known as Data Files
      Relating to the Immigration of Germans to the United States, 1850-
      1897; Data Files Relating to the Immigration of Italians to the
      United States, 1855-1900; and Data Files Relating to the Immigration
      of Russians to the United States, 1834-1897.
