Title in the Language of the Records

Hospedaria de Imigrantes de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brasil

Record Description

This is a collection of immigration records from the Immigrants Hostelry of the city of São Paulo for the years 1882-1925. However, the hostelry was opened in 1887 and closed in 1978; in its place now rises the Museu da Imigração (see website below). This collection contains images of registration records for passengers entering and leaving the hostelry, which includes indexes, passengers’ registration, and vessel lists. Hostelry patrons included not only foreigners but also Brazilian citizens from other states who were relocating to the area. Passengers arrived at the port of Santos and from there they were transported by train to the Immigrant Hostelry (Hospedaria de Imigrantes) in São Paulo, where they received all kinds of help to begin their settling process in the area. These records were obtained from the Arquivo da Secretaria da Promoção Social em São Paulo.
