IMMIGRATION RECORDS
The National Archives have an incomplete series of immigration passengers list of ships arriving from abroad. Archive records have most ship's manufest which may contain some additional information. Most lists date well after 1800. Some later records to New York are not indexed. Records before 1800 are made from local, state and other records. Before the American Revolutionary War less than 1% of all immigration records remain. The following list is by year and made from various sources that include the MacAdam, McAdam, McAdams, McCadam and other forms of the name. The listing of origin of Great Britian can mean Ireland, Scotland or England.
