          Dear Ms. Elzinga,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Inward and Outward Foreign Manifests, 1745 - 1865 in the Records of the U.S. Customs Service (Record Group 36) for the port of Baltimore. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at Philadelphia (RE-PA) via email at philadelphia.archives@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 RE-PA. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

           

          For earlier passenger lists, we suggest you contact the Maryland Historical Society and review the FamilySearch wiki for Maryland Emigration and Immigration.

           

          Since the vessels and ports were under British control, we suggest you contact The National Archives of the United Kingdom, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 4DU, United Kingdom

           

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