Immigration - PA

PENNSYLVANIA ARRIVALS

1800 - 1906


The following immigration data was extracted from microfilm records by Chappie Carol Toole about ten years ago. It was previously published in Chapman Chatter.

The data below is from the port of Philadelphia for the period 1800 - 1906. It shows name, age, sex, occupation, nationality, destination, ship, and arrival date. This information comes from National Archives Microfilm Record Group 36 "Records of the U.S. Customs Service, 1820-ca. 1891" This particular one comes from series M360 called "Index to Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Philadelphia, Pa., 1800-1906." There are 151 rolls in the series that is arranged alphabetically. All of the Chapmans would be on roll 21- covering names Cassoc- to Chetf-. If you would like to know more about these folks there is a companion set of microfilm that is called "Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Philadelphia, Pa., 1800-1882." It is series M425, contains 108 rolls and is arranged by date. You need to find your person or family in the index in the first list and then using the date of arrival find the passenger list in this series.

There are similar records for the following ports or groups of ports- Atlantic, Gulf and Great Lakes [with exceptions for some of the others listed below], Baltimore, Boston, New Orleans and New York. For Baltimore there is also a Soundex series. If you would extract some of that data we would like to use it.

In addition to these there are the "Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, 1891-1954" in Record Group 85. Though for a later period these cover a wider range of ports. They also include a greater variety of records. If you are really interested in this and desire further explanation please let us know.

You can access the above described microfilm at any National Archive facility, many genealogical libraries, and the LDS family history centers. If you are not familiar with the family history center nearest you it is time you paid them a visit. Let us know and we'll try to tell you where to find them. Then make arrangements with them to get some of this microfilm on hand and you extract the data for us and send it in.

It is suggested that those planning to undertake a piece of this project advising us of your intentions to include the series and port you will extract. That way we should be able to prevent any duplication of effort. If you don't care which you do and you want an assignment from us to include the microfilm roll number you will need please contact me as soon as possible.
