- Historic Emigration
Office The Historic Emigration Office has the passenger
lists of all emigration ships which departed from Hamburg
between 1850 and 1934. These lists include about 5 million names
on over 400 microfilms. If they are going to help with your
research, they need the EXACT year of emigration of your
ancestors. If you know for certain your ancestors departed from
the port of Bremen/Bremerhaven, there is nothing they can do to
help. The passenger lists from Bremen were destroyed in World
War II. Will search the Hamburg Passenger Departure Lists for a
fee. (In Egnlish and German)

Kindness. The 4293 volunteers of this movement have agreed

the volunteer for his expenses in fulfilling your request (video
tape, copy fees, etc.). This is not a FREE service.
