Synopsis: This work is a very helpful aid in the use of the indexes of immigrant passenger lists in the National Archives, for they are arranged in the chronological order of the ships' arrival dates, and there under by the names of the vessels or the passenger lines, and only then by passengers' surnames. This directory provides a ready means of ascertaining information that will be helpful, for it is arranged by year and steamship company, and there under by port of entry, the vessel name, its arrival date and port of embarkation.

Note from Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives: From our own collection of Passenger Lists, we found an unexpectedly high incidence of westbound transatlantic steamship voyages to US Ports not being recorded in this directory. If you find that your relative arrived at a given port and date, but it is not listed in the directory, check the ports' microfilm records for verification of the date of arrival.
