The Genealogy.com immigration databases
have been added to this subscription in order to make it the
most complete set of immigration records. These databases
contain over 2 million names including early passenger lists
from 1820 - 1850. Aproximately 2.4 million immigrants
arrived during this period, many from Ireland and Germany.
If you have ancestors from Ireland and
German, this could be an invaluable database. The Irish
potato famine lasted from 1846 - 1847 and spurred a massive
exodus to the United States. Furthermore, the failed
German revolution in 1848 caused mass emigration.
