Seeking information re the SS President Doumer voyage from Marseilles to Shanghai #france
I'm currently trying to ascertain the date when the SS President Doumer departed from the port of Marseilles, France, bound for Shanghai, China. My parents and sister were passengers on the ship, which possibly left Marseilles late 1938 or early 1939. I would also be interested to know the route the ship took from Marseilles and whether any passenger lists still exist.

You can find pictures and a little bit of history about the "SS Président Doumer" here : http://www.messageries-maritimes.org/pdtdoumer.htm
Also according to this article (in French sorry)
the "President Doumer" was back in Marseille the 21 December via the route : Saïgon, Hong-Kong, Shangai then Kobé.
So we can make the assumption, that he went to Shangai via Kobé as well.
I will send you the passenger list in private, for the arrival of the "President Doumer" in 1938
