Have you tried

It has numerous ports going  to the US. 
Also has Canadian  passenger and border crossings. These are very helpful.

Be sure to search phonetically for all surnames.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [] Passenger arrival records #usa #general

I am so upset at the difficulty of finding passenger arrival records, at least for me. grandfather came from the Minsk area of Russia to live at Mt Forest Canada. His father went first Jacob Levine, then this brother Morris and last his grandmother mother Balya Levine(Cohen) who traveled with Ana born 1889, then Sam 1893 and last Nellie 1898. I am told they came around 1905. BUT which port. Sam lied that he was born in Canada.
I have done genealogy for many years with a lot of success but passenger list are so hard for me to have luck in..
Can someone give me hints? They all show up on the 1911 census. The libraries in Mt Forest gave me so many newspaper stories and pics. I got records on family in Minsk. Even a pic of the family house.
Please help me.
I will be posting the 1939 list of the population for Tarnobrzeg, Poland soon
