About Atlantic Ports, Gulf Coasts, and Great Lakes Passenger Lists, Roll 7: 1820-1835

This database contains more than 10,000 immigrant names. Originally published by the National Archives as Copies of Lists of Passengers Arriving at Miscellaneous Ports on the Atlantic and Gulf Coast and Ports on the Great Lakes, 1820-63, this database includes passenger lists from the following port: Passamaquoddy, Maine, 1820-35.

On the U.S.-Canadian border, Passamaquoddy, Maine, was a major port of arrival for immigrants from Great Britain. Many of them first landed at New Brunswick and Nova Scotia before continuing to the United States. The deep waters of Passamaquoddy Bay, an inlet of the Bay of Fundy, afforded excellent anchorages. Campobello Island, in New Brunswick, was a favorite vacation place for President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Other large islands are Deer Island, N.B., and Moose Island, site of Eastport, Maine.

Among the passengers on this list were the great ornithologist John James Audubon and his son James W. Audubon, returning from a stay in England, in the summer of 1833.
