Summary of Progress
In June 1998, I began researching a group of U.S. immigrants from Madeira. As I searched for information on our specific ancestors, I came across much related
information... including detailed passenger lists. To save others some time, I convinced my charming daughter, Austin, to help me transcribe these
shiplists. (Thanks, dear! =) My apologies for all errors and ommissions.
Sept 6, 1998, Katy L. - "I think I may have located my 2nd great-grandparents, Joze & Maria
FERNANDES. They are on the same ship that your Thomas came on so I think there's a possibility
of a link there..."
August 1998, Bob H. -"...my great grandmother, #14 Mary RODRIGUES age 15, was listed
as a passenger on the Trowbridge... I had not heard of the Trowbridge until I surfed your website."
June 27, 1998, Chris - "Good news: looks like your gg-grandmother, Matilda JACINTH,
sailed from Trinidad on the "Thomas Trowbridge", arriving in NY on 6 Aug 1849."
