St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, commemorates the life and work of Ireland’s patron saint and a day full of wonderful and joyous celebrations.
In honor of the day, MyHeritage.com is giving free access through March 17 – to a special collection of passengers arriving in New York from Ireland from 1846-1851.
The collection contains over 600,000 records of immigrants who arrived in the Port of New York (1846-1851), and the ships on which they arrived. The records contain important passenger information and may include name, age, last residence, destination, passenger arrival date, occupation and much more.
This is an especially interesting collection as these records contain information about immigrants from Ireland to the United States during the Irish Potato Famine, 1846-1851.
Again, the offer lasts through March 17 (according to EST). Start your search today!
