I remember being told that my great uncle,who had already settled in Brooklyn, took in dozens of people from his part of rural Ireland when they first arrived in New York.Is there any way of interrogating column 19 of the New York passenger arrival lists to find out how many times a particular address is recorded,either on the Ellis Island or Familysearch versions of passenger lists?

Thank you.

Is there a way? I was hoping someone would post the solution, it would come in very handy. Even better if you could search on last residence and destination together.

The way I solved my problem was by entering my great uncle's name in the 'other person' field of the familysearch version of the New York passenger arrival lists.
