Are there records of French emigrants to the United States, specifically New York, from around 1800? I am unable so far to trace the origin of my 3x great grandfather, Jean or John Dusolle, who married in New York in 1810 and presumably arrived there at some point in the previous 10 years. Any help would be much appreciated.

I found http://members.cox.net/smithgen/sources/ships/ships18201850.htm  which may be of help. I looked up ships passenger lists from france to america, and there are several sites on Google.

I am wondering the same thing - my great grandfather left France about 1890 for Canada but I cannot find any evidence of ship or port of departure or entry. Good luck.

I did, thank you. However, the US arrivals records are patchy at best before 1820 and I was rather hoping the French records of people leaving might be better - but I see no mention of any, anywhere.

The Immigrant Ship Transcriber's Guild (ISTG) has transcribed and posted thousands of ship's passenger manifests online.  You can find it at www.immigrantships.net.  The manifests are generally sorted by year of departure, sometimes by place of departure.  It's a treasure trove of immigration information.  Good luck!

Have you looked at the Ellis Island web site?  I easily found my ancestors on that.
Hope it helps

Ellis Island.  The name may be spelled differently so use the broadest search there is.

My ancestor left France with the French troops that fought in the American Revolution,.  The fact that he received a land grant in the US after the war made it easy to locate him here, but I have been unable to find him in French records before that time.  The fact that I don't read French is a big handicap. of course..  I traveled to St. Malo, France where he was from, and I did locate a notation in the cemetery records there of another Jean Bachelot that I believe to be that of the father of Jean Bachelot, the immigrant.  The stones were missing or broken, but his name was in the records there.  This goes back into the early 1700's.  I am impressed with the excellent records the French keep and hope to discover more.

One more thing that I might add is that the great clipper ships were first built in St. Malo, and those ships, because of their speed, made possible not only trade, most notably the slave trade, but also faster voyages to America.  You might check the military records to see if you can locate your ancestor among the French troops, or among the ships passenger lists.  I don't know if the lists of graves in the cemeteries are available online or in libraries in France.  I found mine by actually locating it at the cemetery itself.  I also know that there are people in St. Malo who will do genealogical research in the libraries there.  I am not sure what they charge, but I remember locating them online.

I do not know if this will be of help, but I found my family record of travel from LeHavre to New Orleans in 1817 by going to the archives in Rouen, France.  Their records are not online, but they do accept self-stamped addressed requests. Their website is: http://www.archivesdepartementales76.net/.

I hope this helps.

Check the Ellis Island site, it was a big immigration station and most emigrants arriving in NY had to go through it. You may find valuable info, good luck.

:) I had researched my gr grandfather and his cousin for years especially in New York; with no avail; then I found out that if a ship landed in the winter they sometimes could not dock in port of New York due to ice. I was lucky enough to read that they probably would have went down to New Orleans but the date I needed was missing. (Of all the luck). I, then found my great grandfather's petition to become a United States Citizen in Clermont County Ohio and on his declaration of intention he mentions the he was supposed to come to New York but landed in New Orleans. He was travelling with his cousin and they had relatives already in Clermont County Ohio. (The Rosselot family) so they settled there. Francis Courtot was the son of a Rosselot and his father was Jean Claude Courtot. Jean Claude Courtot and Marie Catherine Courtot were siblings and Marie Catherine was mother of Joseph Courtot. Francis Courtot also fought in the American Civil War.

I am trying to confirm William Sipprell emigration to America around 1786. Did he come through England or France. How can I confirm that he was a Huguenot?
