Rhode Island Passenger Lists: Port of Providence, 1798-1808, 1820-1872; Ports of Bristol and Warren 1820-1871by Maureen A. Taylor
The information in this volume was compiled from the little known Custom House Papers in the Manuscript Department of the Rhode Island Historical Society, and was supplemented by a National Archives microfilm publication containing copies of passenger arrival lists. The Providence lists from 1798 to 1808 are actually extremely rare Alien Registration Lists, kept in compliance with the Alien Act of 1798. They contain the name of the alien, his age, place of birth, the country he came from, the nation he belonged to and owed allegiance to, his occupation, and a physical description.
