Ellis Island, New York

Records of Grimshaw Passengers, 1892 to 1924

Home Page

Over 22 million passengers and ships’ crewmenbers entered the U.S. through Ellis Island and the Port of New York between 1892 and 1924. During the first half of 2001, the American Family Immigration Center (AFIHC) opened a website that includes a searchable database for these potential U.S. immigrants. The website address is http://www.ellisislandrecords.org. A search for the surname Grimshaw in the website database currently yields 267 entries. Additional search for variants of the spelling of “Grimshaw” yields 12 more, for a total of 279 potential Grimshaw immigrants.

Website Description

 

Welcome to the launch of the American Family Immigration History Center. We are pleased to have you among our very first visitors to this site which we created to help people search for and tell stories about passengers who came to America through Ellis Island and the Port of New York. In the coming months, we will continue improving this amazing archive and storytelling invention. Remember, you can always continue your search here as we update and refine the system. We hope you come to visit us at Ellis Island

 

About AIFHC

 

Located in the Ellis Island Immigration Museum and on the World Wide Web, the American Family Immigration History Center (AFIHC) allows visitors to explore the extraordinary collection of immigrant arrival records stored in the Ellis Island Archives. Searching our archives can help inform your own family’s story — inspiring a new sense of your place in the larger story of American immigration.

 

The Ellis Island Archives

 

More than 22 million passengers and members of ships’ crews entered the United States through Ellis Island and the Port of New York between 1892 and 1924. Information about each person was written down in ships’ passenger lists, known as “manifests.” Manifests were used to examine immigrants upon arrival in the United States. Now you can search these millions of records for information on individual Ellis Island passengers.

 

The Passenger Record Archive

 

In the Passenger Record Archive, you’ll find:

 

passenger records, giving passenger name, date of arrival, ship of travel, age on arrival, and more original manifests, showing passenger names and other information ship information, often with a picture, giving the history and background of each ship that brought the immigrants

You can keep copies of the passenger records, manifests, and ship images in Your Ellis Island File–which you can open on Ellis Island or here on this Website. And you can purchase copies of these documents at our online Gift Shop or at the Interpretive Shop on Ellis Island.

 

The Community Archive

 

Our Community Archive is a growing collection of annotations to the passenger records. Sustaining Members of The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation (SOLEIF) create the annotations, which give new information on a passenger’s background and life in the United States. Nonmembers and members alike can view the annotations.

 

Family History Scrapbooks

 

Sustaining Members of the Foundation also have the opportunity to create unique tributes to their families: electronic Family History Scrapbooks. A Family History Scrapbook is an illustrated history of your family, which you compose by writing stories, adding photographs or other images, and making audio recordings. Sustaining Membership benefits include creating your initial Scrapbook free of charge, here on this Website or at The American Family Immigration History Center (AFIHC) on Ellis Island. Then continue working on your Scrapbook, buying new sets of pages–even starting entirely new Scrapbooks. Your Scrapbook will become an evolving record of your family’s story. You can choose to keep it private or add it to the public Ellis Island Family History Archive. Non-members can read and enjoy Scrapbooks stored in the Family History Archive.

 

Grimshaw Entries in the Ellis Island Database

As noted, 279 Grimshaws (including the spelling variants Grinshaw, Gremshaw, and Grimshawe) are to be found by searching the database. The search results are generally in alphabetical order and include the passenger name, residence (if indicated), year of arrival, and age upon arrival. For this webpage, a table of the Grimshaw entries was re-sorted first by year of arrival and then alphabetically to make the data more useful. The results are included in the table shown below. Grimshaws entered the U.S. every year from 1892 to 1924 except for 1901. Many of the passengers indicated a U.S. location as their place of residence and thus may not actually be immigrants. Grimshaw researchers who desire information on one of the passengers listed below are encouraged to visit the AFIHC website (http://www.ellisislandrecords.org) for additional information.
