The Hamburg passenger lists contain two sections: DIRECT passenger lists (with indexes) show passengers who left Hamburg, Germany, and went directly to their destination without stopping at other European ports. INDIRECT passenger lists (with indexes) show passengers who stopped at other European or British ports before sailing for their destination. . A separate DIRECT index exists on another catalog record under the title of Index zu Hamburger Schiffslistenkarteien, 1850-1871, also known as the "Klüber Kartei" and produced by the Auswanderungsamt in Hamburg. This is superior to the direct indexes listed below.

FIFTEEN YEAR INDEX: In addition to the regular indexes, a special card index of the direct passenger lists was made for the period 1856-1871 This card index is easy to use because of its typewritten format, but it is incomplete. Therefore, be sure to search the regular DIRECT, and INDIRECT indexes if you do not find a particular passenger in this fifteen year index.

INDEXES: 1850-1854: No index is needed, the lists are alphabetical. 1855-1914: Each volume (Bd.) of index is alphabetical only by the first letter of the surname of the head of the household. 1915-1919: Passenger lists not kept because of World War I. 1920-1934: Indexes are completely alphabetical.

LISTS: 1850-1854: Each volume (Bd.) of lists is alphabetical only by the first letter of the surname of the head of household. There is no separate index. 1855-1934: These lists are arranged approximately by ship departure date. Indexes show the page number where the passenger will be found in the lists.
