Adjacent Names on the Manifest?

Always pay close attention to names of passengers that appear next to your ancestors on a passenger manifest. They may be names you encounter when researching your ancestors in the area where they settled. Neighbors sometimes immigrated together and occasionally those "nearby names" are relatives in some way shape or form.

  1. Check out all persons on the same manifest from the same town... no matter how close or far on the manifest... people waited in line... some closer than others.
