    Seeking post-1963 Miami arrivals passenger lists

    carolita johnson Newbie

      All my relatives arrived from Ecuador via flights that stopped in Miami, Fla. I've found them all except for a relative who arrived in 1964 --  the online database of the Miami passenger list archive stops at 1963. Any ideas how to get anything after 1963? Even though the Miami landings were only a stopover en route to NYC, there are never any hits in New York airport archives, only Miami.
