Participate in The Indexation of The Baltimore Passenger Lists

Posted by Jean-Yves on May 27, 2019
 

Genealogy is based on sharing and 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 249,000 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.

I have done some indexing for family search. Am willing. Send more information please.


I find this method of indexing to be maddening – It takes longer to load the next card than it does to type the data. I was in the middle of a batch, when it did not bring up the next card. When I tried to ‘encourage it’ to do so – it threw me out of the site.
