Steve Morse’s Ship-Lists Project

Steve Morse’s team of over 50 volunteers went through every one of the 3700 rolls of Ellis Island microfilms from 1892 to 1924. For each arrival they found, they recorded the roll, volume, frame, date, ship-name, and ports.

Now that it is complete, this is the first searchable list of every ship arrival along with links to the associated manifest pages. The list consists of a total of 84,000 ship arrivals.

The searchable list can be accessed by clicking on the “Ship-Lists” link in the Ellis Island section of Steve’s website at
