Let me first thank all of you who gave me so many helpful suggestions.
I thought it might be helpful if I told you what has worked to answer my
particular question, as it might help others.
I learned that you can go to stevenmorse.org and search for the name of
Someone did this leg of the work for me and told me the St Laurent
sailed into New York, but had I not known this, I could have just
searched the listed ports that included the year 1867. It turns out
only New York lists this ship.
I learned that ships in 1867 arrived in Castle Garden.
So I searched:
*Castle Garden Passengers*
<http://stevenmorse.org/ellis/cg.html>*: Searching the Castle Garden
Database in One Step (castlegarden.org)*
There I searched the name of the ship, St. Laurent, in 1867
It gave me 6 dates for the St Laurent in 1867. One is in June, another
I went to familysearch.org and clicked on search records. At the bottom
of that page there is a box where you can find a collection. I entered
passenger list in the box and it gave me a list to choose from. I chose
New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1891
At the bottom of that page is the option:
Browse through 428,944 images
That brings you to a page that lists the NARA roll numbers and what
dates they cover.
The info I got >from stevenmorse.com gave me the NARA roll numbers that
contain the St Laurent passenger lists, so all I had to do >from there is
click on each applicable roll number and browse that roll.
I am in the process of doing that right now.
I cannot thank you enough for your help with this project. I had no
idea where to begin and now I am right on course.
