Ship Passenger Lists and Indexes You Can Find Online

One of the most popular webpages on my German Roots genealogy website is one called "What Passenger Lists Are Online?" It's a directory of Internet sources for some transcribed or digitized ship passenger lists or name indexes of passengers. These are for ships that brought immigrants and other passengers to the USA and to or from many other countries. There are also links to other finding aids for some ports.

The top half of the webpage is for USA arrivals and includes sub-sections for New York, Alaska, Baltimore, Boston & New England, Florida, New Orleans, Oregon, Pennsylvania, San Francisco & Hawaii, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. About half way down the page you will find an international section with sub-sections for Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Some of the items listed on the webpage are free to use, some are fee-based -- these latter are usually marked "requires payment" or something similar. You can find the passenger lists directory at:
