Find Your Immigrant Ancestors AND their Relatives in the New York Passenger Arrival Records - free webinar by MyHeritage's Mike Mansfield now online

The recording of today's webinar "Find Your Immigrant Ancestors AND their Relatives in the New York Passenger Arrival Records” by MyHeritage's Mike Mansfield is now available to view at for free.
Webinar Description
Until now, no organization has indexed the millions of additional names and relationships listed in the New York passenger arrival records which provide information about the arriving immigrant’s nearest friend or relative in his home country as well as information about a friend or relative in the USA. These additional names and relationships are now available in a searchable index for the first time and can help genealogists find elusive passenger arrival records and solve difficult genealogical problems. This webinar will provide a brief history of passenger arrival records collected at the Port of New York and focus on using the newly updated and expanded index on MyHeritage to improve findability in these important immigration records.
