Immigration Archives - Steamship Tickets, Immigrant Contracts for Passage

Top Portion of 1880 Immigrant's Steamship Ticket

The Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives has a large collection of original steamship tickets for Transatlantic and other destinations, dating from the 1880s through the 1950s for immigrant passages to America. All of the immigrant contracts have been transcribed and have an English translation. Even though it is highly unlikely we have your family's steamship ticket, try selecting a contract from the same steamship line or ocean liner used by your ancestors for illustrating your family history.
