Registros de Pasaporte do Porto, Portugal
This is a collection of passport registers for the years 1940-1950 that are housed at the Arquivo Distrital de Porto, Portugal. From the middle of the 19th century to the late 1950s, nearly two million Portuguese left Europe to live in, Brazil and the United States. This collection covers passport registers, which were authorized documents given to people wanting to travel outside their province in the same country, passengers in transit, or passengers going overseas.
