ARGENTINA - Indexed records of British Settlers
British Settlers in Argentina—studies in 19th and 20th century emigration

An indexed collection of records from Argentina documenting the presence of thousands of British and other English-speaking residents there. Records include baptisms, marriages, deaths and burials from the Anglican and Scots Presbyterian churches, transcripts from the National Archives in Buenos Aires and London, Argentine census returns and contemporary publications

New York City Area must have of links for resources

Boston Passenger lists
http://www.sec.state.ma.us/arc/arcsrch/ ... tents.html
Boston Passenger lists 1848 - 1891 are now listed online at Massachusetts State Archives.
This is an ongoing project and as yet, far from complete.

Good starting point for research especially for Ellis Island passenger research. Helps you to find images of passenger records that were indexed incorrectly or missing when searching from the www.ellisisland.org web site.

The Atlas of Canada's Gazetteer Map Service offers direct access to the Atlas of Canada's Find a Place maps. URL links to maps showing the location of 47 000 place and geographical feature names. The complete database can be searched at: http://atlas.nrcan.gc.ca/site/english/d ... tteer.html

A helpful link from the above, allows for searching place names, current and former, which is very helpful where name changes or amalgamations have taken place. Also very helpful in relating towns, villages, townships etc. to the larger districts and townships.
