The articles in this collection deal mainly with ports in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland and list some 5,000 17th- and 18th-century arrivals. While about half of the articles deal with English and German immigrants, others are concerned with immigrants of Dutch origin, and some few deal with Huguenots and Jews. As is customary with ships’ passenger lists, the data provided consists of a mixture of references to ships, ports and dates of embarkation and arrival, wives, children, age, religion, occupation, and places of origin and residence. The documentation is spare and copious by turns.
