How To Order Passenger Lists

I will research the manifest of ships and airlines for you for a small fee of $5.00. If you would like a copy of the ships or airline manifest, there is an additional fee of $5.00. For $10.00, I will research all immgration records, and make a copy of the manifest page.
Please include a stamped, self addressed envelope with full name of passenger, year and country of birth and name of country at the time of departure and all other information that might be of some help to:
