The goal of this project is to document the immigration ports and passenger roles for the United States.

Right now this project just has one member - me. My name is Steven Harris.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help!

  • Document all known US immigration ports that were used in the United States. - In Progress
  • Create Project Pages for each of the States - In Progress
  • Create Project Pages for each Port within the applicable States
  • Begin to document the Passenger Roles - by year - for each Port (as they are available)

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

Hi. I can help with the state of Texas. Texas is my home state and has/had a unique situation with Ports of Entries. Many of my family members were "illegals" - of course - they probably had a different view since some were Native Americans and some came from Spain.

I've added your project to a better category so people can find you. Sounds like it would fit well in our United States History Project. Thanks for starting it!
