A family leaving from Yorkshire going to baltimore , Maryland, US in early/mid 1700's how would they go via which port? Did the ports keep records of people leaving and on what ship? i belive the name spelling was changed at Baltimore and family kepth the new spelling. I know this happened at New York at Ellis Island in 1800's. I want to see if checking the exit port will give me a diferent spelling of Foy that was use in Yorkshire.
