Manifests

Here are the ship manifests that I have found for our relatives that came over through Ellis Island. An interesting fact: VERY few of the people that I found had their name spelled on the manifest the same as the spelling I have.

You will probably have to scroll right to find out what line to look at and how the name was spelled on the manifest. Most of the manifests can be read if you are zoomed in. My version of Netscape brings up the manifest zoomed in. My version of IE brings up the manifest zoomed out, but there's an icon in the lower right corner of the image that zooms in.

You can find tips for searching for manifests yourself in my notes, under "Finding Manifests for your Relatives"

You can find tips for printing in my notes, under "Printing Manifests and Census pages"

You might find my Ancestor tree or my Last Name Index useful.
You also might like to view the Census Data I have found, or my summary of where everyone was born.
