Immigration Research Weekend

No, it’s not any kind of official event, but what else were you planning to do for the Labor Day weekend?

Ancestry.com is offering their Immigration and Travel databases for free until September 2nd. What’s included in those databases? A lot.

Ship passenger lists with arrivals to New York, Boston, Baltimore, California, and more; outgoing ship lists from Hamburg and the UK; border crossings between the US and Canada, US and Mexico. Naturalization records are also part of the immigration collection. They’re even offering Jewish arrivals to Switzerland from 1938-1945 among the “other records”.

So if you’ve got some time this weekend, now is a great opportunity to fill in some of those missing documents. If you don’t have time, maybe you’ll want to make some. The free access is already available now, so take advantage!
