FREE Immigration data at Ancestry is offering FREE access to their Immigration Collection through November 30th. The link to the entry page is here.

The Ancestry collection just tripled in size, and now has over 100 million entries for passengers through over 100 ports.

I have very few immigrants in this time period - but I did find James Richman in 1855 and his wife Hannah and their children in 1856. It looks like James also came in 1853 and in 1889, which is new info to me.

If you haven't found your immigrants yet, you might look for them in the Ancestry collection. Don't forget to check all of the databases that come up for your name - they may not have come into the port you were told or you expect.
