Participate in The Indexation of The Baltimore Passenger Lists

Posted by Jean-Yves on Oct 29, 2018
 

Last April, more than 1,500 of you participated in the indexation of the Collection Mayet and you have indexed almost 120,000 individuals on Geneanet. Today, we propose to participate in a new “Indexation Week” with the Baltimore Passenger Lists to make it available for all genealogists.

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) have a collection of passenger lists of ships arriving at the port of Baltimore, Maryland, USA, from 1820 to 1897. These 780,000 records contain the name, the first name, the gender, the age, the nationality and the last permanent residence of the individuals, as well as the name of vessel, the date and port of entry, and the destination.

This week, we invite genealogists who would wish taking some time indexing this collection to join the project. All together, we can index the 200,000 remaining records!

To participate, go to the menu “Projects” then “Collaborative indexing”. Select the collection “Passenger list (ship)” and the time you can spend on it.
