Finding a Ships Passenger List to USA in 1880

Gold asks:
I believe my gf, Christian Rau, b ca Nov. 1861 in Germany, came to USA Aug 1880 on the P Caland. Is the manifest for this ship on the internet?
If not, is there a way for me to obtain a copy of the manifest.Apparently the manifest is available at the FHL Roll 029593 and archives Series M237, Roll 429, but can't get to archives & difficult to get to a FHC.

Olive Tree Answer: Ships Passenger Lists to USA are available online on They are indexed and names of passengers are linked to the actual manifest image.

You can also order a copy of the image from NARA
