April 2017 Class Notes


Search early American (pre 1923) newspapers at Chronicling America.

Reminder: Whenever you come to this page, REFRESH it so you see any new content since the last time you were on the page.

Here is the Ellis Island website. To search it more effectively, Check out Steve Morse's several "one step" search pages at stevemorse.org

I have 3 web pages that cover this and I've just updated 2 or them.

1.Your Guide to Finding Your Immigrant Ancestors -- a general page, with links to more detailed information.

2. Your Guide to Finding and Using Passenger Records and Ship Information

I will update the one on naturalization records before the 4th class. Right now it will have a lot of bad links.

In class we talked about using vitalrec.com to find out how to get vital records from state, county and sometimes city governments.
