You wouldn’t want to ride on these ships…

Mary Penner has written another wonderful column, You wouldn’t want to ride on these ships but you may want to read the passenger lists, in The Albuquerque Tribune. This column covers the various immigration logs and information available to genealogists on the web.

Excerpt from the article:

But millions of immigrants landed on the American shores, and genealogists are determined to discover the ship that carried them across the ocean.

After you have learned all you can about your immigrant’s life in America and once you have a good idea of when your immigrant came to America and from where, you can begin searching for records that point to the ship he or she came on.

I would highly recommend reading some of her other columns
