Famous Passengers

Famous Passengers

Although millions of Americans can find their ancestors on the passenger manifests of the ships that arrived through the Port of New York and Ellis Island, many may be surprised to learn that prominent Americans traveled aboard those same ships, albeit not in steerage. These passengers included corporate barons, diplomats, actors, and prominent members of society, as well as U.S. Presidents. Also sailing on the ships were international figures, who may have been touring the United States or passing through the Port of New York on their way to another destination. A variety of these people--immigrants, international travelers and Americans--are featured here among our Famous Passengers.
