Collection Time Period[edit | edit source]

This collection of passenger lists card index covers the years 1904 to 1914.

Record Description[edit | edit source]

This is a collection of handwritten cards covering the information of over 8,800 passengers.

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. 

This name index includes approximately 8,800 individual emigrants. The cards appear to have been in good condition when they were microfilmed in 1988.
