          Hello Linnea,

          The passenger list for the 1 April 1893 arrival for the Elysia in New York from Naples, can be found at FamilySearch here:

          You will need to register to access records at FamilySearch, but it is free.

           

          Happy searching.

              Dear Ms. Maloney,

               

              Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

               

              We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Passenger and Crew Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York, New York, 6/16/1897 - 7/3/1957 in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85) that includes the list of passengers that sailed on the SS Elysia and arrived in New York on April 1, 1893. The records have been microfilmed as National Archives Microfilm Publication No. T715. Unfortunately, not all of the records have been digitized and available in the Catalog. For access to T715, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov.

               

              Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

               

              T715 has been digitized by Ancestry. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Archives has partnered with Ancestry to make the vast majority of their NARA-digitized holdings freely available to the public. Anyone with Internet access may create an account, access NARA records, and use other Ancestry resources, such as their educational offerings and family tree-maker application.

              As indicated by Joe Beine, T715 also is available using FamilySearch.

               

              We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
