Re: [TexasCzechs] Thanks and a Question (Ports of Entry)
The Baca books are not exhaustive and Mr. Baca continues to publish new
volumes as he completes additional research. He is currently at volume
VIII (I believe).
Your assumption that your immigrant ancestors arrived at a port on the
Eastern Seaboard is quite probable. There were ports at Baltimore,
Pennsylvania and Boston, as well as others. Volunteers continue to post
additional web pages of ships passenger lists.
A good source for information is the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild:
and many more.......
Just do a Web search for "passenger list" to access additional web sites
for more on ships and their passengers.
You could also search the National Archives at:
http://search.nara.gov/ for more information related to ships lists,
history of the various ports, etc. The microfilms they contain are the
basis for most of the lists on the WWW.
Sharing. It's What It's All About!
NameSearch: GARZA, ZATTLER, REYNA, FOSTER, SCHACHTNER, STOPFER,
HOLLMAIER, VOGEL, VOGL, WEINZIERL, FINK . . . and more to come!
