Ship Manifests for 1950s

Postby AnitaDamini » 15 Jan 2008, 22:24

Hi all
I am new at this and could use some help

I am researching some relatives who emigrated in the 1950s from Genoa to New York. Other than Ellis Island website, where else can I search for manifests?
For some, I have the ship's name, and dates of travel. For others, I only know they emigrated in the 1950s.
Some landed at Halifax.

I appreciate your suggestions

Ancestry.com provides manifest into the 1950's, however it is a paid subscription site.

Many of the members here at ItalianGenealogy have a subscription and would be more than happy to look up the name/names you are seeking if you can provide more information. Full name, approximate birthdate, and if female, include maiden name. Marital status if known, and any others you would expect the person to be traveling with, such as spouse and children.

Wish it was just the weekends....I'm back on dial up, and dialing 30 miles to the nearest connection!!! :roll:
Doing anything on the internet has become a real pain, one of the drawbacks to country living....almost makes me want to move back to the city.......Thanks for providing the image. :)
