Stillwaters Advice: Don't stop your research into this area once you've discovered your ancestors name on a passenger list. Seek out information on the Ship itself. You might find a record of the voyage. In one case this gave me insight into the conditions under which an ancestor travelled, and led me to discover that the ship struck a rock and sank. My ancestor was one of only 3 survivors, and was credited with rescuing a small child and the child's mother.... who he went on to marry and raise a family with in the New World.
