Finding Ancestors in American Passport Applications

Passport applications are often a valuable source of genealogical information. NARA has passport applications from October 1795 to March 1925. The U. S. Department of State has passport applications from April 1925 to the present. You can also consult passports online at Naturalization Records. There are some large projects as well as individual passport records on the site.
