Dear Ms. Fine,
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, 1897-1957 (T715) in the Records of the U.S. Customs Service (Record Group 36) that may contain immigration information for Alfred Ball. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at New York (RE-NY) via email at email@example.com.
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-NY. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
T715 is 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.
You may also wish to search the Passenger Search - The Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island for records of Alfred Ball as well as review the NARA publication on Immigration Records.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
