Call us at 678-744-4952 but send us an email and phone number so that we can receive your call. We love hearing about how people were helped by our site.
Remember that we are not genealogists, and our focus is on ephemera, not records. Understanding that distinction is critical to figuring out the best place to submit your questions.
If one is looking for records of a specific voyage or other similar type records, we recommend going to the National Archives or Ancestry or a similar website. They have record-based databases based on government records and are more likely to be able to provide an answer to one's question.
Our goal is to supplement the bare facts with examples of brochures, passenger lists, immigration documents, etc., to make our patrons more knowledgeable about the topics we cover.
To use an analogy, we are more like a textbook than a database of records. One would not consult a textbook to find information about one of the tens of thousands of voyages between 1880 and 1954 --- that is a job better suited to large databases.
However, one would consult a textbook to learn more about the history, public events, or examples of documents to help one understand their ancestors and what they might have been going through.
