In a previous blog written last December, we stated that passenger ship manifests for emigrants leaving from Göteborg (1869-1935), Malmö (1874-1939) and Stockholm (1869-1940) ports are available on ArkivDigital. We have recently added passenger lists for persons leaving from Helsingborg. For Norrköping, we have added the passport journals (passjournaler) for persons traveling both in and outside of Sweden.
An example of a manifest for a ship leaving from Helsingborg is shown below.
