Passenger lists before mid 1897
- I understand that passenger lists of vessels to NY have not been indexed for
the period of 1847 to mid 1897. I would imagine that to find an ancestor who
arrived sometime between 1893 and mid 1897 I would have to search each and
every passanger list in that time frame. Are there passenger lists for that
period on microfilm at the NARA? I have found many NARA microfilm numbers
for passenger lists on line, but so far haven't been able to find anything
regarding this particular subject.
