GENEALOGY DISCOVERY BEGINS WITH YOU
Your library can help patrons start their genealogy journey with the electronically searchable Passenger and Immigration Lists Index on the Gale Directory Library platform.
This new digital format is an easily accessible and searchable resource for anyone who wants to trace their family history or learn more about immigration and genealogy—from immigrant arrivals in New York through Ellis Island to passenger lists for those entering New Orleans and more than 200 other ports.
First published by Gale Research Co. in 1981 in print-only format, Passenger and Immigration Lists Index covered 500,000 persons. The 2020 digital edition provides access to more than 5 million people who immigrated to the United States and Canada between the late 1500s to mid-1900s, departing from more than 100 ports in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, and the South Pacific and arriving at more than 200 ports in North and South America.
This resource is a must-have for libraries or organizations that maintain historical or genealogical collections and serve a population interested in genealogy, family history, and immigration research.
