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.
Why This Collection Was Created?
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.
