Thanks Julie, for the heads up on the cost. This makes Ancestry.com
look cheap. I am assuming this is for one person per charge. Yiks is
all I can say as I have a whole raft of folks to look for that I have
found their ships etc. on. What new can one learn at Castle garden I
wonder? I will most definitely do the quick search.

Again thanks for the warning,
