U.S. Passport Applications, 1787-1925

What is the first thing many immigrants did upon reaching The Land of Opportunity? Go back home. For many, the pull to revisit family and reconnect with familiarity was too great to ignore. Ancestry.com has recently added a database which one can use to trace ancestors through their birthplace, residence and their intended destinations — many times leading you back to their native town. Some records in this collection also include pictures (over 300,000) and additional information that may offer clues to other details in their lives.

One can search the database but one needs to subscribe to Ancestry.com to search their database. However, if you are already a subscriber you can get to that database by the following steps:

  • Log on to Ancestry.com in the usual manner.
  • On the main page in the upper right corner you will see "Search Resources". Click on "Card Catalog."
  • In the "Database Title" box, type Passport Applications and click "Search".
  • Then click on the link, "U. S. Passport Applications, 1795-1925."
  • That takes you to the page where you can enter your search information.

Or, if you are already a subscriber, just log on to Ancestry.com in the usual manner, and then click on the following link: U. S. Passport Applications, 1795-1925. You may also want to bookmark that page for future use.
