 Passagierlisten Baltimore, 1820-1964

Bei dieser Datenbank handelt es sich um einen Index der Passagierlisten von Schiffen, die zwischen 1820 und 1964 aus ausländischen Häfen im Hafen von Baltimore im US-amerikanischen Bundesstaat Maryland einliefen. Darüber hinaus sind die Namen im Index mit den tatsächlichen Bildern der Passagierlisten verknüpft. Zu den in diesem Index enthaltenen Informationen zählen Vorname, Nachname, Alter, Geschlecht, ethnische Herkunft, Nationalität oder Land des letzten dauerhaften Wohnsitzes, Ziel, Ankunftsdatum, Ankunftshafen, Abfahrtshafen, Name des Schiffs sowie Mikrofilm- und Rollenseitennummer.

This database is an index to the passenger lists of ships and airplanes arriving at the port of Baltimore, Maryland, USA, from 1820 to 1964. The names found in the index are linked to actual images of the passenger lists and airplane manifests, digitized from National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) microfilm. Information contained in the index includes given name, surname, age, gender, ethnicity, nationality or last country of permanent residence, destination, arrival date, port of arrival, port of departure, ship name, and microfilm roll and page number. This database also contains a few records of immigrants who entered the U.S. at other ports or border crossings and were later asked, when they were living in Baltimore, to fill out immigrant arrival information on passenger lists. Therefore, you may find individuals in this database whose port of arrivals are, for example, St. Albans, Vermont; Portal, North Dakota; Port Huron, Michigan; Tampa, Florida; and others.

Information contained in the index includes:

  • Name

  • Age

  • Gender

  • Ethnicity, nationality or last country of permanent residence

  • Destination

  • Arrival date

  • Port of arrival

  • Port of departure

  • Ship name

  • Microfilm roll and page number

If a name of a friend or relative whom the individual was going to join with, or a place of nativity was provided, that information is included in the index as well. Many of these items may be used to search the index in the search template above.

Many passenger list forms, especially those from the twentieth century, were two pages long. Be sure to click the "Previous" and "Next" buttons in order to see all the images pertaining to a particular manifest.

It is important to note that the port of departure listed on these passenger lists is not always the original port of departure for these individuals. A ship could make several voyages throughout the year, making several stops along way. Oft times the port of departure found on these lists is the most recent port the ship was located at prior to arriving at the port of Baltimore. Therefore, if your ancestors emigrated to the U.S. from Germany, they could be found on a passenger list coming from Liverpool, England (if, in this case, the ship left from Bremen, Germany then continued on to Liverpool, England before arriving in Baltimore).
