Immigration and Ships Passenger Lists Online Research Guide

Past GSBC President, Arnold Lang, authored an award-winning immigration guide a number of years ago. After a major update by Barbara Ellman, the guide is again available, and can be accessed here.

The goal of this Guide is to help in research of United States immigration records and ship's passenger lists, both on-line and off-line.  Procedure and examples are included to help those who are new to this research, however, numerous tips, help and links to other sites are provided for advanced research.

This Guide is based on material originally presented at the Genealogical Society of Bergen County, NJ by Arnold H. Lang. It has been updated and expanded to include links to on-line web sites, databases, and other subjects associated with immigration.

This guide is maintained by members of the Genealogical Society of Bergen County, N.J in honor and memory of our past president Arnold Lang — who shared his knowledge with us all.
