FamilySearch adds Michigan, Detroit Manifests of Arrivals at the Port of Detroit, 1906-1954

There are more than 850,000 images, arranged alphabetically by name, for individuals entering the United States through the Port of Detroit, 1906-1954. Includes a few records of persons entering at Port Huron, Sault St. Marie, and other Michigan ports.

Although these are not indexed if you know your alphabet you can soon hone in on a name of interest. Generally includes the following information:
Birth place
Last permanent residence
Name and address of relative or friend
Port and date of entry
Name of ship

I've been reminded that often links to individual FamilySearch databases don't work. You're best to go to and scroll down to Michigan entries.
