5-Step Search for Your Immigrant Ancestor in North America

Step 1: First search for your immigrant ancestor in the five major ports of arrival - New York New York, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Baltimore Maryland, Boston Massachusetts and New Orleans Louisiana

Naturalization Records are a great way to find an ancestor's arrival year and ship name!

Step 2: If you don't find your immigrant ancestor in a large port city, try smaller ports of arrival - Virginia, Connecticut, Delaware, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maine, Rhode Island, Florida, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Michigan, Alaska, California, Hawaii and Washington

Step 3: Still can't find your immigrant ancestor on an American ships passenger list? Try a Canadian Port of Arrival and the Canada-U.S. border crossing records (Saint Albans Lists).

Step 4: If you still can't find your ancestor in free ships passenger lists, try ships passenger lists and naturalization records on a pay site. See the Immigration Comparison Chart to help you decide which of the fee-based sites has the passenger lists you need to find your immigrant ancestor

Step 5: Search for ships passengers in Ethnic Groups immigrating to America, other miscellaneous ports of arrival, Ships Passenger Lists on NARA microfilm, J.J. Cooke Shipping Agent Records, Castle Garden New York Ships Passenger Lists 1855-1890, Ellis Island New York Ships Passenger Lists 1894-1927 & Naturalization Records
