Free NY and MA Passenger Lists from Ancestry

Lorine Schulze at the Olive Tree Genealogy site is offering exclusive free access to two databases at This page says:

Exclusive FREE Use of Databases!

I'm very excited to be able to offer this exclusive free access to two of's databases. This offer is only available to visitors of Olive Tree Genealogy, and is made possible through a co-operative effort of and

** FREE Database Number One is the very popular New York Passenger Lists 1851-1891 & 1935-1938 including Castle Garden passenger lists

** FREE Database Number Two is the Boston Massachusetts Passenger Lists, 1820 - 1943

For a limited time (until Oct. 4, 2006) but only through Olive Tree Genealogy, you can search these wonderful records as often as you like -- with no obligation to purchase anything - and no credit card is required.

It worked great for me - I downloaded the images of the NY lists with my great-great-grandparents James and Hannah Richman, who came into NY in 1855 and 1856, respectively.

If you have ancestors immigrating in these time frames at these ports, I encourage you to check out this free offer.

While you're there, check out the databases that Olive Tree Genealogy has to offer. Lorine has worked on this site for many years and it is wonderful.
