This microfilm series consists of difficult-to-locate baggage lists from
1800 through 1819, as well as original passenger lists from 1820 through
1882. While the entire series spans 108 rolls, this data set covers rolls
1 through 71. Indexed and searchable by key word, it includes approximately
180,000 individuals who arrived in Philadelphia between January 1, 1800
and December 23, 1850. Passenger lists are important primary sources of
arrival data for the vast majority of immigrants to the United States
in the nineteenth century.
