Re: Are ship manifests available from departing ports in Europe? #general

There were no "ships that arrived at Ellis Island".  Ships (large vessels that crossed the ocean) arrived at Manhattan and all passengers got off the ships there.  Third class (steerage) passengers were then taken to Ellis Island on ferries (smaller boats).  (First and second class passengers were processed in Manhattan.)

Manifests for passengers departing from Hamburg, Germany are available online.  I think has them.  I don't know about Antwerp (Belgium) or Le Havre (France).
