Locating Ships Passenger Lists #general


Carole/Phil Silverman
 

My grandfather emigrated to the US by ship via Antwerp Belgium to New
York in 1905 in the month of October. I have found the four ships that
came to New York >from Antwerp in October and their dates of arrival. I
was able to view microfilm containing several of the ships passenger
lists at the LDS Family History Center. However, the microfilm that
should have had the ship, Kroonland, arriving in New York on October 10,
1905, in fact did not have that ship listed. Can someone direct me to
another source where that information can be located?

Thank you.

Carole/Phil, my Gfather also arrived via Antwerp and like your situation, his
passenger listing was not there.

When I inquired to the worker at the National Archives, he said that some
listings were never microfilmed.

However, a professional genealogist sitting nearby and hearing my inquiry,
suggested, that some passenger ship listings were attached "out of order" and
DO appear on films either before or after the microfilm you might have looked
at. I looked, and the passenger listing was there.

I hope this works for you as it did for me.

Phil, Try this. First, consult the Morton Allan Directory of European
Passenger Ships Arrivals to confirm that the Kroonland did indeed arrive on
Oct. 10. If correct, look up the the two microfilms (Oct. 7 and Oct. 13)
that respectively precedes and follows the microfilm of Oct 10, 1905. For
example, the Oct. 10 microfilm contains volumes 1352 and 1353. You may
discover that Vol. 1352 actually begins at the end of the Oct. 7 film or
that Vol. 1353 actually ends at the beginning of the Oct. 13 film. This is
what I found while I was searching for the ship that brought my mother to
the U.S. in 1923.

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.
