Steerage Passenger Lists

Steerage souvenir passenger lists are exceedingly rare. With few exceptions, most steamship lines did not produce passenger lists for steerage passengers, as immigrants were unlikely to be a regular customer, nor was there any demand for a souvenir of a voyage that likely was less than pleasant.
