General Search Tips
  • If you don't get any matches with an exact search, try broadening your search by including less information.
  • Want to refine your "best matches" search? Try the Advanced Search options and fill out as much information as you can.
  • Use the Soundex search. Names are often misspelled in historical records. Soundex allows you to search for last names that "sound like" the one you're looking for. Try this even if you think the spelling is obvious. Remember, even Smith can be "misspelled" (e.g., Smithe, Smyth, Smythe).
  • Use a wildcard to view all words that begin with the same stem. You can use an asterisk for up to six characters. For example, a search for "fran*" will return matches such as Fran, Franny, Frank, Frannie, and Frankie. Use a question mark for a single character. For example, a search for "Hans?n" will return matches such as Hansen and Hanson.
  • TO WHICH I will add:- use as few search terms as possible then add details to thin down the broad results -- expect variations in spelling of place names -- errors in transcription of initial letters for example L = C or H = B = R = K which can not be replaced by wild cards -- use Keyword(s) field often because it works as a free text search for transcribed data

LONDON — Tom Cruise's great-great grandfather, Dylan Henry Mapother, emigrated to Louisville, Kentucky in 1850 from Flint, Wales. Halle Berry's grandmother, Nellie Dicken, was nine months old when she sailed from Liverpool, England in 1912 onboard the Merion to settle in Philadelphia. Mary MacLeod, mother of real estate mogul Donald Trump, travelled from the Isle of Lewis, Scotland to America onboard The Transylvania in 1935.

The website is part of a global network of genealogy sites providing over five billion records to the public.These are a few of the stories revealed in a list of passengers on voyages from the British Isles to the United States between 1820 and 1960 released Thursday by a British genealogy website. launched over a 100 million U.S. immigration records from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, tracing the ancestors of some of America's most famous names.
The lists reveal the journeys of Scottish men who became symbols of success in American business, including the founders of Buick, Campbell's soup and Forbes magazine. "Without question, the millions of names in the Ancestry passenger lists represent brave and colourful individuals who played a significant role in shaping what has become modern America," the website's managing director Simon Harper said.
The records show date, departure port, destination, age, nationality, occupation, accompanying family members and purpose of travel among other criteria. Liverpool became the most popular departure point for Irish and British immigrants in 1818, according to records from Ellis Island, the historic immigrant portal in New York harbour.
