== What is in This Collection? ==
This collection includes records from 1904 to 1914 of handwritten cards, covering the information of approximately 8,800 passengers. The cards appear to have been in good condition when they were microfilmed in 1988.
This card file was created by the Deutsches Ausland-Institut from Bremen passenger ship lists sometime between WWI and WWII. When the allies occupied Germany at the end of WWII, the Institute was closed and later re-opened as the Institut für Austlandsbeziehungen. These records, created by the Deutsches Ausland-Institut, were subsequently transferred to the Bundesarchiv.
The index was created to facilitate access to the information in the Bremen passenger lists. It was created by the Deutsches Ausland-Institut, who was interested in documenting German groups outside of Germany.
The information is reliable; however, as this index has been derived from the actual passenger lists, errors may have occurred during the indexing process.  === Sample Images =What Can These Records Tell Me? == Click on images for a larger view. <gallery> Image:Germany Bremen Name Index to Passenger Lists (08-0225) DGS 004338887 00008.jpg|Passenger List </gallery> '''These records''' may contain the The following informationmay be found in these records:
