You might also check out passenger ship arrivals, Ellis Island, New York, or any other port of entry your search suggests.

But . . . be cautious. My search for my grandfather's 'true' emigration resulted in finding multiple years of arrival in New York with his name. NOT 'Smith'. Always same port of departure. Same year of birth, as I recall. I just couldn't figure out which one was my grandfather. Until I finally noticed that one name, port of departure, was different than the other collection of departure dates from a single port, both of England. What was the giveaway? My grandfather was 6'2", the other gentleman was 5'11" and entered in the list of crew members. Subsequently, I was able to focus my emigration search. So, the same message applies to this as all hints.

Get excited, but use caution {chuckling}. Good luck and enjoy!
