Boston, Massachusetts Passenger Lists

Ships arriving in Boston Massachusetts are available both on microfilm and online.

Boston Massachusetts ship arrivals have an an 8 1/2 year gap from April 1874 to 31 Dec 1882 on microfilm M277 Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Boston Massachusetts 1820-1891.

There are no Federal records of any kind prior to 1883 (fire destoyed them) so State Department copies were used in their place. State Departments copies and abstracts only cover up to end of March 1874.

The good news is that there are records for the missing years. They are not available at NARA, only at the Massachusetts State Archives

Tthere is an index on microfilm M625 which covers those missing years. Finding an ancestor on that index in those missing years means you have to then write to the Massachusetts State Archives for a copy of the passenger list page with your ancestor on it.
