The starting point for documenting the voyages of your immigrant ancestors –and many native-born ancestors- should be the official customs lists and the later immigration manifests required by the U.S. government as of 1820.
A group for anyone interested in the Counties of Delaware, Greene, Columbia, Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan, Westchester, Putnam, Orange, and Rockland, including Staten Island, and New York City boroughs not on Long Island.
Thanks for the idea. I'll definitely check that out. I have to talk to them about doing a library exchange anyway since a book I want is out of print and the nearest library to have it is a college one which will charge me $25 to "become a friend of the library" so I check out books. I didn't realize they did computer stuff too. That certainly makes things easier lol Thanks again!
