Port of Detroit Index (repost from Anglo-Celtic Blog)

There are more than 850,000 images, arranged alphabetically by name, for individuals entering the United States through the Port of Detroit, 1906-1954. Includes a few records of persons entering at Port Huron, Sault St. Marie, and other Michigan ports. Although these are not indexed if you know your alphabet you can soon hone in on a name of interest. Generally includes the following information: Name Birth place Age Gender Occupation Nationality Last permanent residence Destination Name and address of relative or friend Port and date of entry Name of ship I've been reminded that often links to individual FamilySearch databases don't work. You're best to go to and scroll down to Michigan entries. from:
