New York, New York Custom House Reconstruction, 9 Dec 1719-31 Dec 1723


Genealogy research is like a puzzle that must be solved without the help of a reference picture. This book presents valuable puzzle pieces to complete the picture for the Port of New York, spanning December 9, 1719 through December 31, 1723, with a complete list of ships and their travels. The author has reconstructed a nearly complete list of ships and their voyages across the Atlantic and West Indies to and from New York. In addition to records for the New York Custom House, this book shows partial arrival and departure records (including ports other than New York) and previously unknown interactions between ships and captains. After cross-referencing names, ships, ship types, dates, and ports from the original list of 2348 captains and 2348 ships, the list was concatenated to 347 captains and 376 ships. This wealth of information is presented in a table format. An index of captains, an index of ships, and an index of sources add to the value of this work.
