Passenger Manifests and the Immigrant Voyage w/ Phyllis Kramer, JGSGB Speaker Series

September 27, 2015 Waltham $0.00 - $5.00 0

Many of us have found our immigrant ancestors on the passenger manifests of the ships that brought them to the U.S. Others among us are still searching. But even when we find the manifest, it does not tell the whole story of the immigrant voyage.

Phyllis Kramer will show us how our ancestors got their tickets and traveled to the ports of embarkation, what documents came with them, and how U.S. immigration laws affected their lives. She’ll also provide tips on searching for manifests, understanding their notations and deciphering handwriting.
