passenger index for arrivals in Boston Harbor 1848 - 1891
« on: Sunday 03 July 05 21:05 BST (UK) »
Hello

I was looking for something else but found this index -
http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ArchivesSearch/PassengerManifestSearch.asp?Action=S

Quote
Massachusetts officials started recording the names of immigrants who
arrived by ship in January of 1848, a procedure which continued until July
of 1891, when federal records-keeping programs superseded those of the
state. Although immigrants arrived at numerous Massachusetts ports, the
Archives holds manifests for BOSTON ONLY.

Hope this helps some one looking for an arrival in the US

Sincerely

Thelma
