Considering how messed up some of the manifests have become after
researchers got thru with them <>G (I have to laugh or give up and cry) and
considering how hand writing can be. I suggest you search thru the
stevemorse.org search forms.
Ellis Island is searched thru http://stevemorse.org/ellis2/ellisgold.html
Back it off to the Org and you can search other ports one at a time using
all the tricks you can think of.

For all that has been, thanks.
For all that will be, yes.
