I'm trying to find my Greatgrandfather, Louis John Ruysser in the passenger lists. He immigrated to the United States in either 1863 or 1865 (according to two United States census lists). He was from Wuustwezel, Antwerpen, Belgium.
I'm assuming he left from port Antwerp to sail to the US.
I do not know the port he arrived in. Ellis Island wasn't open at this time. I checked on the Garden?? but didn't find him there.
I don't know if he came with other family members or by himself.
He went by the name Louis John Ruyssers in the US, but may have traveled as Joannes Louis.
Can anyone lead me in the right direction for finding my GretGrandfather's journey to the United States?
