Searching Microfilm Records

Once you know your ancestor's state of entry, you can search microfilms. Most states are indexed, so this will make your job slightly easier. You can order films in to a nearby Family History Centre, or have NARA do the job (once you have precise details) The staff of the National Archives will undertake a search of the original records for a fee but you must know the name of the ship, the date of arrival, and the port of arrival.

To obtain a search request form, write to:

General Reference Branch (NNRG),
National Archives and Records Administration,
7th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW,
Washington, DC 20408
and request NATF Form 81, Order for Copies of Ship Passenger Arrival Records

The cost of a search using NATF Form 81 as of November 2000 is $17.25

You can also order National Archives (NARA) forms online at http://www.archives.gov/global_pages/inquire_form.html To find your nearest FHC you can go to http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHC/frameset_fhc.asp
