Ellis Island Passenger Manifest project
In 2015 as part of a Ukraine Special Interest Group project,
the Ellis Island records of passengers who seem to be from Dashev
are being re-indexed with the addition of who in North America they
intended to see and (after 1906) whether they still had a contact
from their country of origin. If you have surnames
to look for, please review this list.
To see a chart of arrivals
by year it is here.
Non-New York Collection
Not all immigrants from Dashev entered through Ellis Island.
While these ports have indexed arrivals, they are not searchable by
town name. When we have encountered records that are
specific to Dashev, we have begun a pair of lists.
