This collection contains over 600,000 records of immigrants who arrived in the Port of New York (1846-1851), and the ships on which they arrived. The records contain important passenger information and may include name, age, last residence, destination, passenger arrival date, occupation and much more. 

This is an especially interesting collection as these records contain information about immigrants from Ireland to the United States during the Irish Potato Famine, 1846-1851.
