They Came in Ships: A Guide to Finding Your Immigrant Ancestor's Arrival Record
Chances are excellent that your ancestors came to America from somewhere-England, Spain, Germany, China, Africa. Can you imagine how they felt as they left their homes, what they left behind? Do you want to know? Would you know where to even start looking for the details? Author and genealogist John P. Colletta prepares you to undertake the search. He tells you not only what fundamental facts you need to know about your immigrant ancestor before beginning, but suggests where you may find that information as well.

The 1993 edition doesn't allude to Internet use, so it's not going to appeal to many. If you're working with the microfilm passenger records, this is excellent in pointing the way.
Review: They Came in Ships: A Guide to Finding Your Immigrant Ancestor's Arrival RecordUser Review - Goodreads
Lynn 929.1 Colletta This was a excellent book. It clearly states and informs one on how to get started or review their search for ancestors that immigrated. For example, not everyone came to America via Ellis Island nor are all years recorded.
