Ancestry Immigration Records Updated

Postby nuccia » 10 Nov 2006, 00:24

I think some of you will have already noticed that ancestry has upgraded their immigration records to include ship manifests up to 1955. Unbelievable amount of info and its free for subscribers for 30 days...not sure about new comers but I would suggest anyone interested to log on and check it out to see what they offer.

Having a great time with this! :D

Ally,

Go for it! Just found my Dad's manifest. I had trouble finding it but I knew the year and the ship he came on so I just entered the ship name, and year and the first 3 letters of his surname with a * and got 21 hits (as opposed to (9500). He was there. Its pretty exciting even though the manifests don't tell you much in the later years..but it gives a passport number!

No problem Lee...thats what we do here..share! :D I'm so happy you were able to find that manifest we talked about earlier.

This is great isn't it? I found half my family and just got off the phone with Dad.

Now maybe we can revisit some of our more recent posts and try to update the info.

And I know just where I'm going to start... :D

Hi, it seems like the database is free right now, so i'll check it out myself...

Sorry :( about the crazy request, I didn't think there would be so many hits. Thanks for checking though :)

Zani was right Suanj......September of 1955!!!

The newer manifest do not contain alot of info....but it does contain Nonno's passport number.....so that is some new info to!!!!

And something I argue with my mother all the time......Uncle Pappy was not named Medell........it was Amedeo......Medell is but a nickname, and then in the family.......he was called Uncle Pappy..........

Baci,
Lee

Its nice to see the different types of manifests. The more recent ones offer no info on age or place of origin but it does say "tourist" manifest on some. I like that it offers addresses and passport numbers. Sometimes you just know its your relative but other times its a guessing game, isn't it?

I believe I saw "airplane" listing as well. Can't remember now but I will check it out.

I really think anyone who doesn't have a subscription should take full advantage of this opportunity. You never know what you can find...and it is best to start with yourself and work backwards...

Mom still has Dad's original passport. We're going to check the info out against the passport just to see. I would be interested in seeing the real manifest to see if there is any additional info.

By the way, do any of you notice the images aren't as sharp as on the stevemorse site? Could be my imagination but I have been playong with it quite a bit and comparing.
