A lot of people in the USA have problems finding out what town, etc. their families came from. Early ship records do not include it.
Depends. After the 1820 Act Regulating Passenger Lists, at least the immigrants' country of origin had to be listed. Finding towns might be difficult because people often tend to forget that territories change hands over the centuries and that place names change accordingly.
Another good source for research: immigrantships.net.
