Where did they land?

Hints And Tips

When answering the ArrivalMaps/RelationShips “Where did they land?” question: When your earliest-crossing relations came over, they landed at some specific port of arrival. See if you can determine the port. Similarly to the case for the departure port, you may know, may be able to determine, or may be able to infer the probable arrival point from his/her when the voyage was made and the first-gen’s destination in the new land.

If All Else Fails

You may not be able to determine the first-gen’s arrival port with a great degree of certainty. But the routes of immigration and paths to settlement are well known, so the most probable ports of arrival can often be inferred from a family’s destination in their new land. So if all else fails, simply pick a representative port close that makes sense in terms of the first-gen’s probable first destination, or even the current family residence.
