New Orleans Passenger Lists January 1847

Compiled by Joe Beine

The names here are from the WPA Transcripts for January 1847 and represent only a small portion of the total arrivals. If you believe your ancestor arrived in New Orleans in the first quarter of 1847 (Jan-March) and you do not find them listed on these pages you should check the New Orleans Quarterly Abstracts microfilm.

These lists are transcribed from National Archives Microfilm Roll #M2009-2 for 1847 (the first ship, the Brig Harriet, is also on NARA Roll #M259-26). See the source notes below.
