Free passenger list webinar set for March 21

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will present a free webinar on Tuesday, March 21 at 1 p.m. entitled “Fact, Fiction, and Immigration Passenger Lists.”

Too often, assumptions we make get in the way of successful passenger list research. In this webinar, US Citizenship and Immigration Services records expert Marian Smith will revive and update a 2006 presentation about understanding passenger list arrival records.

Topics included will be the availability of such records (what records survived, are they complete?), how they were created (by whom, how, and where), and how preconceived notions can help or hinder research success. Smith will also reflect on changes in passenger list research over the last decade.

This webinar will not be recorded, so be sure to join us live. To attend the webinar, go to: and click on Live Webinar Schedule and select the March 21 presentation.
