Deutschland, Bremen, Namenskartei aus den Bremen Schiffslisten

Record Description

This collection will include records from 1904 to 1914. The records are in German.

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. 

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 pretty reliable; however, as this index has been derived from the actual passenger lists, errors may have occurred during the indexing process.

Record Content

The card index includes:
  • Surname
  • Marital status
  • Occupation
  • Given name
  • Departure date
  • Passenger number
  • Ship name
  • Last residence place
  • Destination place

How to Use the Records

Use the last residence given in the card index to pursue earlier records for the individual: birth records in any case, marriage records for those that had been married.
