New Orleans Ship Passenger Lists Database Updated

Ancestry's New Orleans passenger lists index has recently been updated to include the years 1820-1945. Previously it covered 1820-1850. The new database also includes digitized images of the passenger lists from the National Archives microfilm (from NARA publications M259 and T905). You can check out the newly updated database at: New Orleans Passenger Lists, 1820-1945

You must be a subscriber to Ancestry's U.S. (or world) genealogy records collection to access this database. Searches by name of passenger can be done from 1820-1945. You can also browse the lists by year, month and ship - scroll past the search box for the list of years.
