Today, we wish to remind you that you can find passenger ship manifests for persons leaving from Swedish ports in ArkivDigital’s online archive and you can search by name. ArkivDigital has manifests from the following ports: Göteborg (Gothenburg), Malmö, Helsingborg and Stockholm. You can search by name for these records by doing the following:
- Go to Index search.
- Select emigrants under Index Source.
- You can search using a simple search or advanced search.
You can search for the following information:
- First name
- Last name
- Birth date or calculated birth year
- Departure date
- Departure port
- Vessel or name of the ship
In the above image, we see the index record and original manifest for P. O. Westermark. The index record details the departure date, departure age, departure port and the name of the ship. It is always important to review the original record for possible additional information. In this case, we see that his place of residence was the parish of Gamleby and his destination is noted as Du Bois, Pennsylvania. The destination place can be helpful in locating the person in North America.
