Program Description

Event Details

Late 19th and early 20th century alien passenger manifests often contain cryptic number and letter codes. Most genealogists simply ignore them. Learn how to interpret these codes and discover what significant details they can reveal about your ancestor’s immigration and naturalization experience. This presentation is heavily illustrated with examples from actual immigrant passenger lists and the handout provides a fairly complete glossary of the terms, codes, and abbreviations used.
