      Hello Group,
      My question is, Are there any other seaports online to check other than
      ellisisland?
      Also where one might check if families came through Castle Garden.
      Thanks,

        I don't know of any other American seaport databases on line but a limited
        number of records are available for German ports and I'm sure not all ships
        used NY ports as entry ports. A good reference document and guide for
        research is "Immigration and Ships Passenger Lists Research Guide":

        http://home.att.net/~arnielang/shipgide.html (one of many available guides)
        Other guides - http://www.kbyu.org/ancestors/records/immigration/extra.html

        If you haven't already, you might try these German online databases:

        Bremen - http://db.genealogy.net/maus/gate/shiplists.cgi (1920-1939)

        Hamburg - http://www.hamburg.de/LinkToYourRoots/english/welcome.htm

          There is a Web Site that was prepared by Myra Vanderpool Gormley, CG; located
          at http://www.genealogy.com/8_mgpal.html?Welcome=999751002

          This site claims that major indices are available for the ports of Baltimore,
          1820 -1952; Boston 1848 -91, 1902 -20; New Orleans 1853 -1952; Philadelphis
          1800 - 1948, and Minor Ports, 1820 - 74, and 1890 - 1924. Check it out!
