Germany - Bremen Passenger Lists 1920 - 1939

If your roots are in Germany, like some of mine, you may find this one helpful, especially if the time of emigration is between 1920 and 1939. Unfortunately, my German ancestors came to the U.S. about sixty years earlier. This project was completed with the help of the Bremen Chamber of Commerce. You may hit the jackpot if the time period is right, but you should know that only 2851 out of 4420 listings for that time period are still existing and have been transcribed completely. Passengers in total: 637,880
