Chances are, if you're American, you've got immigrant ancestors! For over 400 years, from the 1500s-1900s, millions of people immigrated to the United States. They came from Europe, Africa, Asia and Central and South America. And nearly all of them came by ship, leaving behind valuable clues for you to discover! They Came in Ships is the first comprehensive manual to navigate the vast landscape of these ship records!
