Notes

"The purpose of this book [is] to focus attention on the records that detail the arrival of European immigrants in America, to show that there actually exists documentation on millions of those who took part in the great Atlantic migration. In essence, then this is a guide to the records and archival resources that document the arrival of immigrants in America from the time of the earliest settlements to the passage of the Quota Acts three centuries later. As a guide, its sole aim is to explain what the records are, where the records are located, and what they contain, and it tries to cover the random, incidental records of the colonial period as well as the purposeful, systematic records of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries"--Pref.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.
