Genealogy Bank Lists of Passengers who arrived in the U.S. from 1st October 1819 to 30th September 1820 is available to free searching for a limited time. Below is the information posted on the website about what you can expect to find in the data bases.

"GenealogyBank is pleased to provide this free and valuable research tool to genealogists. It's an excellent example of the types of genealogical records found at GenealogyBank that you can use to fill in the details of your family tree.

This published passenger list includes not only immigrants but often US citizens who traveled from one state to another. For example you'll find Alfred Spooner, age 32 a farmer from Vermont and D. McCall age 33, a merchant from North Carolina who were on the Brig Forest that went to Mississippi. You'll find the births at sea of Eugenia Virginia Stark and Charles Julius Wittell and the sad news of the death at sea of Christiana Yauch; all traveling from Germany. There's M.A. Azle the shoemaker from Russia who went to Edenton, NC and Vincent Gonsales who went from Portugal to Mississippi and James Sligman the soap boiler from Germany who went to Charleston, SC. They are all in there."
