    Where did my husband enter the US from Tunis?

    Cathy Bianchi Newbie

      My husband came to the US in March 1959 from Tunis, Tunisia when he was 18 months old.  We are trying to find out where he entered the US.  His mom's passport says:  Imm & Natz Service New York NY 77 Admitted March 23, 1959.

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Passenger and Crew Manifests of Airplanes Arriving at New York, New York, 12/1/1957 - 11/3/1969 (A 3998) in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85). We also located the Passenger and Crew Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York, New York, 1/1958 - 1/1983 (A4115) in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85). These series may include the arrival of his mother with a small child.
