Re: Boston Arrivals -searchable databases? #general

Ship arrivals to Boston are available indexed on micofilm at the Boston
Public Library. There is a gap of a few years not indexed, around 1902 if
I remember correctly. After finding the ship you want, you call for the
microfilm containing that ship's manifest.

To use their resources, you need a library card. The BPL provides them for
visitors at a desk just inside the entrance to the new building (left after
entering). You need this card to request the microfilms.
