Ancestry's New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 database updated

Ancestry has a collection on its site that has just been announced as having been updated, but which I had not twigged was there at all. Entitled New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957, it includes records from Castle Garden (1855 to 1890), Ellis Island (1892 to 1954), and other immigrant processing stations used through the years.

I have no idea what the update is, but it seems a good one to flag up, as up to now I have accessed the same records from other dedicated platforms. You can access the database at

Information contained in the index includes:

Given name
Arrival date
Port of arrival
Port of departure
Ship name

Full source details are available via the link.
