MyHeritage adds New York Passenger Lists, 1906-1942

As people frequently travelled to Canada via the US, especially during the winter, this newly added MyHeritage database with 15,213,248 entries and linked images is of interest. Records typically include the passenger’s name, year of birth, year of arrival, and the ship’s name.

These are not as informative as the Ellice Island immigration records, which also cover a longer period, from 1892 to 1954. On MyHeritage, those are part of the Ellis Island and Other New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 database, which has 113,554,317 records. The new records may be helpful in filling in gaps or with transcription issues.
