Portugal Emigration and Immigration
Portugal Passenger Lists
From around 1836-1976 the Azores was split into three districts:
- Angra do Heroismo: consisting of Terceira, Sao Jorge & Graciosa
- Horta: consisting of Pico Faial, Flores & Corvo
- Ponta Delgada: consisting of Sao Miguel & Santa Maria
It is my understanding that for this time period all passports on the Azores were issued through one of these three districts. The Government of the Azores has a digital collection consisting of passports issued at Ponta Delgada on this web site:
- Immigrant Ancestors Project
- Portugal Seeks Balance of Emigration, Immigration
- Emigração e população em finais do século XIX. A miragem do Brasil no concelho da Meda (1889-1896)
