Additional information such as the crew member's position on the ship, where and when he joined the vessel's crew, or a physical description of him are recorded on some forms and may be ascertained by viewing the corresponding image. Many of the bulleted items listed above may be used to search the index in the search template above.
The microcopies of the crew lists found at NARA are arranged chronologically by arrival date of vessel. If you do not wish to search this database using the search template, the images may be browsed following the chronological arrangement.
