What sources would you recommend for finding the correct arrival dates
of someone in the port of New York and the ships on which they came?
The timeframe I am looking for is during the unindexed periods for New York. I looked at the naturalization papers and find varying dates --
which also differ >from the dates given on the census.
In one family's case I have between 1879 and 1881 depending which
source you read and in the other family's case I have 1889 to 1894.
I really do not want to try and look at all of the passenger lists
and I have tried the books such as "Germans to America" and "Russians
to America" to no avail. Any other likely sources that people have
had success with in getting arrival dates or ship's names?
