Passenger Arrivals at the Port of New York, 1820-1829, One Volume in Two Parts
Author: Elizabeth Bentley
Published: 2015 reprint of 1999 original
Paperback, 1,491 pages
This compilation by Mrs. Bentley is a direct transcription of the original microfilmed lists (National Archives Microfilm #237) for the port of New York during the time period 1820 through 1829. The majority of the passengers arriving in New York at this time were of British or Irish origin (occasionally listed by place of nativity rather than country to which they belonged), and proof of their arrival can be found in no other immigration records of the period. Indeed, this publication is itself utterly unique, and it is not available on CD or in any printed form but this. Here, then, in this one encyclopedic volume are the names of 85,454 passengers with their age, sex, occupation, origin, etc., and the names of the 6,247 ships that brought them to New York.
