Rican Steamship Migration Archives, Inc, is an organization dedicated to the preservation & promotion of the history &
cultural legacy of early pioneering migrants via steamships to the United States.
We accomplish this goal by maintaining historical documents, photographs,
ephemera,andother general information on the shipping lines that transported passengers from the late 1800's to 1949.
By working with historical, governmental, educational
institutions and community based organizations and providing audio-visual presentations on the subject, we hope to educate
and inform the public.
