Immigration Records From 1880s

Postby February » 24 Jan 2014, 04:36

Could anyone tell me if there are immigration records available for the 1880s? I've gotten other records from Ellis Island but they only go back to 1892. Is there any other database with earlier arrivals?

Thanks for any help.

You might try the CASTLE GARDEN site. The database covers 1820-1892 :-)

FamilySearch.org also has images of NY passenger manifests from 1820-1891 if you are having trouble locating a particular name. Clicking through these things and eyeballing them takes time, but if someone was misindexed and you have a small enough date range, it may be helpful:

I'm currently stepping through the 1875 ones looking for a Francesco Romagnano.
