If you have ancestors who emigrated from central and eastern Europe during 1850 and 1934, the Hamburg Passenger Lists may contain important genealogical information for you. Nearly one-third of the people who emigrated from this area during this time period are included on these lists.
For some time the indexes and lists have been available through the Family History Library on 486 rolls of microfilm.
Ancestry recently announced that subscribers can now access every list, as well as a partial index covering the years 1890-1913.
