Immigrant Passage Contracts & Tickets

Cunard Line Ticket Office in Trondheim, Norway circa 1910

The Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives has a large collection of original passage contracts and tickets primarily for Transatlantic voyages, dating from the 1880s through the 1950s for immigrant passages to America.

All of the immigrant contracts have been transcribed and as appropriate, 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.
