ANNOUNCEMENT: New Online Database of Indentured Servants, Redemptioners, and Transported Convicts
PROJECT TITLE: Immigrant Servants Database
PROJECT URL: www.immigrantservants.com
DESCRIPTION: Nathan W. Murphy, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Utah, and employee of Price & Associates Genealogical Services (project sponsor) is using skills he developed as a professional genealogist to reconstruct a passenger arrival list of indentured servants coming to Colonial America. The project will continue for several years. It follows in the spirit of Peter Wilson Coldham's efforts to publish passenger departure lists from sources in the United Kingdom and Ireland for indentured servants and transported convicts, but focuses on tapping American sources of immigrant servant arrivals to complement the UK data.
