Hi Henna
You might try

http://home.att.net/%7Earnielang/ship04f2.html

and NARA -( can't remember the address but if you Google it -  it comes up easy..! ) which is the American National Archives - it has some really good leads -
be careful though you get on that site and before you know it -  it's 2am...!

Hi Henna,
    You could try this link,  www.ellisisland.org they have a most extensive list of passengers. They like you to register it is free to do so. Costs an arm and a leg if you send for the records tho'!
                 Good Luck

Ellis Island is a good site ...
but it didn't open for business till 1892 ( I believe )
The earlier emigrants were admitted into the country at many different ports  -  plus in 1830 they had a cholora epidemic in New York -  and people were going down like nine pins !
ships were turned back -  because people were dying on the way there -
You had to be either very strong or desperate -  to go to America in those days !
