Description

This important collection of ship passenger lists from The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography ranges from brief name lists to full-blown articles giving passengers' places of origin, occupations, wives and children, dates of arrival, etc. With minor exceptions the lists document arrivals at the port of Philadelphia between 1682 and 1819 and identify approximately 6,000 immigrants, mainly British and German, the majority being named in two extensive lists of indentured servants and apprentices. Most of these lists were transcribed from manuscripts in the possession of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.
