The Forgotten of Ellis Island
Deaths in Quarantine, 1909-1911. Great info, plus history. Author says
"Besides placing stories and photos of items found relating to Quarantine, I've placed the names of over 400 people who
died in quarantine between November 1909 and June 1911 with information from each person's death certificate. I've also
begun tracing each individual back to his/her ship's passenger arrival record."
You can currently look at the entire Ashburton
list (53K) on this site.
Many Irish came through Canada.
Sadly, not all ship passenger lists are online.
However, many many ship lists on microfilm can be found at the National
Archives and at the Family History Library.
NARA has good information on immigration records at
The FHL has prepared information on how to research Emigration/Immigration at
In a nutshell, though, you will have to look at two kinds of records: 1) Ship
Arrival Records, to get the specifics of the ship (including exact arrival
date), and 2) Passenger Arrival Records (to get the person).
Some excellent naturalization references
