I can't seem to locate the ship's manifest on-line - but my cousin sent me a copy of the Ships Manifest. ( so I know it exists ) Our family ( Fields - 5 family members ) came over from Liverpool on the SS City of Washington in 1852. Pithin Page was the Master.Olive Tree Genealogy's answer:
My question is that I noticed that you wrote that ships coming to the States before 1855 had no receiving station - what does that exactly mean? Is there anyway to find out the location ( or most likely ) where the ship docked and let off my anscestors??? Or do you think I will never know the answer?
Can you point me to a place I can go that might be able to give me as much information as possible? Ex. - who did all of these ship's manifests filled out by the Masters get turned in to ??? If they all got saved, someone must be holding them ( correct ??? )
Billy you haven't told me where your ancestor landed - America? Canada? Or somewhere else? If it was in Canada, you have a challenge ahead of you.
