Ansvarig för systemet är American Family Immigration History Center

Located in the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration, the American Family Immigration History Center (AFIHC) allows visitors to explore the extraordinary collection of immigrant arrival records stored in the Port of New York Passenger Records 1820-1957. Searching our archives in the Center or online at LibertyEllisFoundation.org can help inform your own family's story--inspiring a new sense of your place in the larger story of American immigration.

More than 25 million passengers and members of ships' crews entered the United States through Ellis Island and the Port of New York between the peak years from 1892 and 1924. But our archives expand beyond those years from 1820 up to 1957 and contain almost 65 million arrival records. These historical manifests have been transcribed into this vast digitized archive thanks to the generous efforts of the volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The archives house manifests--ships passenger lists where information about each passenger was written down--which were used to examine immigrants upon arrival in the United States. Now you can search these millions of records for information on individual Ellis Island passengers. To prepare for your search, gather as much information as you can, such as: the passenger's first and last names; approximate year of arrival; "ethnicity" (which may include race, nationality, and religion); approximate age on arrival; ship of travel; port of departure; and whether the passenger traveled with other family members. (Not all of this information is required for a successful search.) Should you need additional information about how to search our database, you will find helpful tips listed here.
