Passenger list of the ship"General Steward" Aug 1951 Ellis Island

I am trying to find the passenger list of the ship my parents were on when they arrived in the U.S. in August of 1951. They arrived on Ellis Island and my Mom thinks the name of the ship was "The General Steward." Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am a beginner in genealogy research!! Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Nina Feere

P.S. Sorry, their names are Alex and Erna (Meyn) Zygaczenko!

Hello Nina,
You can find a research guide for New York passenger records here...

Finding New York Passenger Arrival Records 1820-1957
http://home.att.net/~germanroots/ellisisland/nypassengers.ht...

Since New York passenger lists have only been indexed until 1948, you will need to know the exact date of arrival. See if you can find your parents citizenship papers, which should have this information.

Good luck with your search.

Regards,
Joe

There was a ship General R.M. Blatchford that arrived in NY, through Ellis Island, on August 24, 1951. The ship sailed from Bremenhaven, Germany. I was on that ship at the age of 13.

The ship was actually the USNS General M R Stewart which departed Bremerhaven on 25 Jul 1951 and arrived in NYC on 3 Aug 1951. On board were Alezj, 32, Erna, 23 and Alexander, 9 months, all were Russian. Don

Robert, thanks for the manifest. Oddily enough the manifest does show general R.M. Blatchford as thye ship, while here it is listing General Steward as the ship.

That is because it is the wrong manifest. See my previous post. Don
