Most lists date well after 1800. Some later records to New York are not indexed. Records before 1800 are made from local, state and other records. Before the American Revolutionary War less than 1% of all immigration records remain. The following list is by year and made from various sources that include the MacAdam, McAdam, McAdams, McCadam and other forms of the name.
