Dear Ms. Gorgas,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 3 series in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85) that include passenger lists and the Port of New York during 1914. For access to these series, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 have been digitized and are name-searchable online at Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, you may wish to contact your local library. Many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for patrons.
We suggest that you review these Genealogy: Passenger Arrival List Research Tips and NARA’s Immigration Records website and not limit your search efforts to only the New York port. There are numerous ways that individuals could enter the United States from Europe such as via a ship to a larger number of coastal ports or over land from Canada, etc. Ship passenger arrival lists were a requirement beginning in 1820, but it does not guarantee that a person was recorded or the list still exists.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Thank you Susannah and Cara,
I searched familysearch and also have a worldwide membership for ancestry. I could not find anything, but I will try the other links.
