Search the passenger records for people who came to America through Ellis Island

  • The Ellis Island Archive contains the passenger lists of more than 51 million immigrants, passengers, and crew members who came through Ellis Island and the Port of New York from 1892 to 1957. The period from 1892 to 1924 at Ellis Island was the largest human migration in modern history! The expansion of this database of Port of New York arrivals is continuing, and all records from 1925 through 1957 will be searchable by early 2015.
