Crossing the Wide Blue Seas: passenger lists of our ancestors

Since the discovery of the New World ships have been bringing passengers to our shores to start new lives. Some of these voyages were well documented and some were not. In this talk we will be discussing how to find evidence of your ancestors on passenger lists.

A Nation of Immigrants: U.S. naturalization and genealogy
