Holland America Line Archives of Historical Documents, Passenger Lists, etc.

(N.A.S.M.) aka HAL (Holland Amerika Lijn)

Holland America Line (N.A.S.M.)

The Historical Documents from the Holland America Line at the Archives is one of the most popular collections. The passenger lists and menus often have some of the most intricate, beautiful artwork - very elaborate and ornate covers that are treasured the world over. Our collection of passenger lists of the Holland America Line covers the first half of the twentieth century.

Visit the passenger lists that have been transcribed to view large images of their front and (some) back covers. You'll fall in love with history all over again.

Just in case you were wondering, the N.A.S.M. is an Acronym for Nederlandsch-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij.
