PENNSYLVANIA BAGGAGE LISTS
Schooner Swift from Puerto Rico to Philadelphia PennsylvaniaEarly arrival to Philadelphia Pennsylvania were documented in Baggage Lists from 1800 to 1819. These are called The Pennsylvania Baggage Lists.
The following names of passengers are taken from FHL film 419589. These are Pennsylvania Baggage Lists from 2 Jan 1809 to 29 Dec. 1809. These lists contain the names of passengers who had to pay taxes on excess baggage. It does not contain the names of passengers who were exempt because their luggage was not over the limit. I decided to index all names, not just passenger names, but also the names of those shipping luggage or goods, and the names of those being shipped to. Passengers whose names are found also have a list of luggage, so interested descendants should obtain the original film to view the full manifest details.
Olive Tree Genealogy has indexed all names, not just passenger names, but also the names of those shipping luggage or goods, and the names of those being shipped to.
