This archives has a name index to the municipal records (1756–1938), compiled by the Works Progress Administration (WPA); indexes to Port of Baltimore ships’ passenger lists kept by the city (1833–66) and those from the National Archives (1820–1909); and the index to naturalizations in the U.S. circuit and district courts for Maryland (Baltimore City) (1797–1951). These indexes can be searched for a fee of $4 per request.
