Castle Garden Manifests?

Postby barbarasprufera » 27 May 2009, 00:00

Is there any way to get documentation or ship manifests for immigrants who came through Castle Garden in NY - prior to Ellis Island opening?
Thank you.

Hello! Have you checked out the below links? I am not sure if the Castle Garden records are as detailed as Ellis Island.

You're welcome. Happy to help!

Hope you have better luck than me. The records I found did not provide as much information as I would like.
