Although Portland, Maine, was a port of entry itself, with indexes to passengers arriving 1893 up to 1954 in the National Archives collection with copies at National Archives—Northeast Region, many Maine residents are descendants of the Irish and other nationalities who passed through immigration in the ports of Boston and New Brunswick (see Massachusetts Immigration).
