More than 22 million passengers and members of ships' crews entered the United States through Ellis Island and the Port of New York between 1892 and 1924. Information about each person was written down in ships' passenger lists, known as “manifests”. Manifests were used to examine immigrants upon arrival in the United States.

Thanks to Barabra Rivas for extracting these Combs &c. Passenger Arrival Records from the Ellis Island database.

Run cursor over each name for additional information.
