SHIPS LISTS FROM THE "NEW YORK TIMES" 1851This project will transcribe names of passengers found in announcements and articles in the New York Times. There will be brief summaries (as shown below) of each ship arriving or leaving New York. If names of passengers were found, there will be a clickable link to take you directly to that list of names. This is an ongoing project, check back often to see what has been added.
