Re: Le Havre Passenger lists--new resource? #general

Jan Meisels Allen

Rob Weisskirch asked about the Le Havre Passenger List that was listed on
Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter. The French Genealogy Blog
posted a collection of surviving shipping documentation for Le Havre
registered vessels and held by the Departmental Archives.

Not all the documentation survived, therefore the collection does not represent
full listings of all shipping >from Le Havre. Some documentation is held at other
archives. These are not only passenger lists, but fishing boats and vessels
sailing to other French ports. The title of the entire collection is
Inscription Maritime which may be researched at:
(in French only).

I have not personally used this site but for those who have ancestors who
traveled not by the usual passenger ships >from Le Havre to North America or
the French colonies it might be of use. The article may be read at:

The article lists the different categories and dates of coverage >from the
mid 1700's to the mid 1900's.
