Passenger List: Compilation of the names and information about passengers who arrived on ships into the United States. These lists were submitted to customs collectors at every port by the ship’s master. Passenger lists were not officially required by the United States government until 1820. Before that date, the information about each passenger varied widely, from just names to details such as number of bags.(Definition from ancestry.com)

Family History

I went to the Burgess, Locke, McCants family reunion this past weekend and was blessed with a gem from my cousin Melvina (the family historian). She gave me a copy of the family reunion book from their first family reunion in 1988. Not only does the book connect the dots on how the families are related but there is also a section with favorite sayings, bible verses and songs from some of my ancestors listed in the book.

When you have family reunions is there a family book or program to tell you family’s history?
