"He Came Over in a Barrel" #virginiapioneersnet #vagenealogy #vaancestors

"He Came Over in a Barrel"  

old wine barrels
There are lots of interesting tales being spun concerning the origins of the ancestors.  A popular refrain is "three brothers came over."  Then there is the one who crossed the seas hiding inside of a barrel.  The truth is usually far removed from such tales, and the only means to find it is to dig into the immigration records at the Federal Archives. The Federal Records Center is open to the Atlanta area five days per week at the following address:  5780 Jonesboro Road, Morrow, GA 30260. Hours: 8:30 am-5 PM, Monday throughFriday. Note: the Ship's Manifest listing passenger names, ages, place of port and destination may date up to three months after the actual voyage.
