Passenger Lists, first and second class passengers

Passenger Lists, first and second class passengers

From the article Finding Immigration Records, "third class passengers or passengers from steerage" were processed through Ellis Island, while first and second class passengers were processed on the ship. Where would one find the list for the first and second class passengers?

I'm learning about records.

If they were on the ship, they are on the manifest, with no regard to class of travel. They are most likely on separate sheets within the manifest, but they are all there. For whom do you search?

Also what time frame are you looking at? Are you sure they came through Ellis Island? Not everyone did. People came in through a variety of ports not just New York City. Also bear in mind that Ellis Island wasn't operational until 1892.
