Re: Locating Ships Passenger Lists #general

If your information on the dates of arrival of the ships in N.Y. came
from the Morton-Allen directory, you need to be aware that directory can
be a day or 2 or 3 off one way or the other. You need to look each day
either side of the M-A date and if still no luck, expand to 2 days
either side. I have not seen it more than 2 days off but perhaps others
in this newsgroup have had that experience.
Morton-Allen is a great reference and many of us would be in the soup
without it, but its not always absolutely exact on dates.
