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.

I noticed you are researching the name Rennick. As you can see, I'm a Rennick. Where do the Rennicks on your tree come from? What I do know is that all Rennicks no matter where they are from, all are related. My husband's great grandfather was born in Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland but his family were from Co. Fermanagh. He was Thomas Rennick, born 1830. He married Anne McCauley from Co. Fermanagh and they lived in Co. Fermanagh, Armagh and Derry before settling in Sligo Town, Co. Sligo. Various members of his family went to the USA, India, Australia and Wales. We are almost sure Thomas' father was Andrew and that his Thomas' mother's surname may have been Elliott, but not absolutely certain.
