TheGenealogist has added over 5 Million passenger records to their US records, featuring people that migrated to the USA between 1834 to 1900. The mass movement of people from one country to another isn’t a new thing. The motivation can be economic, political upheaval or religious persecution. The data covers:
- 3,956,780 Germans emigrating to the United States between 1850 and 1897
- 836,122 Italians emigrating to the United States between 1855 and 1900
- 522,638 Russians emigrating to the United States between 1834 and 1897
Most were drawn to the U.S.A by the attractions of land and religious freedom, after being forced to leave Europe by shortages of land and religious or political oppression.
This release joins the millions of US census, death records, trade directories, wills and poll books already available on TheGenealogist.
