Emigration to the USA

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


David Report 7 Oct 2005 10:23

A large number of Habberfield's emigrated to the US in the period 1880 - 1900. With the help of an American cousin I have obtained a lot of data from Ship's manifest of when they arrived in New York, and also Ellis Island data. Is there any data in this country which gives details on people leaving the country and also reurning as quite a few of my ancestors seem to have made repeat journeys.
