Jan Meisels Allen



The City of Rotterdam (Netherlands) Archives has the passenger lists of the Holland-America Line  (1900-1920) available. This is for people who booked passage on this line going to the United States or Canada in the time frame mentioned above. If you use the Chrome browser it will automatically translate the website into English, otherwise it is in Dutch ad for those who are not able to read the Dutch translation service is advisable. The passenger lists are free to access.


The passenger lists the surname and initials and occasionally the first name of the person who booked the trip, their original place of departure and when the trip took place. The lists also contains the number of adults and children traveling with that person and the destination. Eventually the archives will have the following years.


Searches can be done by last name, name of the ship, departure port or departure date. You can search via the search field 'all fields' if you are not searching by name or period.


You can put the passenger’s name you are searching into the search field.  Go to:


These lists are also available for free on 1900-1974 and may be available on some of the subscription services.
