For this year 1855, two sources for the ship manifests are available. One for the departures from Antwerp and the other for the arrivals in American seaports. There are some discrepancies between the two list for the ships departing from Antwerp and arriving in New York. Those discrepancies are in the "Notes" in the ships arriving in the U.S.A. 

There are also lists of emigrants going in the U.S.A. by Hull and Liverpool, and not directly to the U.S.A. Those emigrants debarked in Hull and went to Liverpool by railway. Bellow, the corresponding lists of the departures in Antwerp and Liverpool and arrivals in the USA. In some cases, the Belgian passengers of one ship in Antwerp went in more ships from Liverpool, and others mingled in Liverpool.
