          Dear Mr. Phatak,


          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, 1/1958 - 1/1983 (A4115) in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85) that should contain your records. The microfilm is arranged in chronological order by date of arrival.  For access to A4115, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC (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.

          These passenger lists may be available and searchable on Ancestry.com. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
