JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Online Archive of Brooklyn (NY) Eagle for 1841-1902 #general

Recently, Carol Gurstelle <cgurstelle@...> offered information to
researching "The First 62 Years of the Brooklyn Eagle Newspaper located
at .

Of most interest in visiting this site is the fact that by typing in
"Passenger Lists" I received 248 hits. In exploring further, you do
receive lists of passengers arriving and departing the ports of New
York. So many of you might be interested in this option as it includes
lists for Castle Garden and the Barge office (remember Ellis Island
became a location for arrivals and departures in NY in 1892).

As examples, "Light Passenger Lists" was an article >from March 1892
discussing departures and included numerous names of those departing on
the Umbria, Fulda, Veendam, Elbe (no passengers). Another article;
"Gone for the Summer - Crowds Flocking to Europe on Ocean Steamers" >from
June 1889 lists dozens and dozens of names of those leaving on vacation.

Of note, I also had no problems using the site with Netscape. It was
easy to use, and I found myself interested in articles that had nothing
to do with my research. It was by far better than other online
newspaper sites to use and navigate. Thanks for posting the link!
Good Luck!
