Immigration Forms

The forms on this page are designed for transcribing names of and information about early immigrants you find on customs lists (the name for early passenger lists) and ship manifests (more-modern passenger lists). Due to changing immigration laws, shipping companies had to record different information about passengers through the years. Record your ancestor’s passenger information on the form corresponding to the year he or she immigrated to America.
