About Atlantic Ports, Gulf Coasts, and Great Lakes Passenger Lists, Roll 8: 1845-1849

This database contains more than 9400 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, 1845-1849.

Passamaquoddy, Maine, a city on the U.S.-Canada border, 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, New Brunswick, and Moose Island, site of Eastport, Maine.
