About Florida, Crew and Passenger Lists of Arriving Vessels and Airplanes, 1906-1954

This collection contains images of Passenger and Crew Lists of Ships and Airplanes arriving in Florida from 1906-1954. Images can be viewed by National Archives roll description and roll number.

An index has not been created for this database, but images will contain name, age, gender, ethnicity, nationality or last country of permanent residence, destination, arrival date, port of arrival, port of departure, and ship name.

It is important to note that the port of departure listed on ship passenger lists is not always the original port of departure for these individuals. A ship could make several voyages throughout the year, making several stops along the way. Oft times the port of departure found on these lists is the most recent port the ship was located at prior to arriving at a port in Florida. Therefore, if your ancestors emigrated to the U.S. from Germany, they could be found on a passenger list coming from Liverpool, England (if, in this case, the ship left from Bremen, Germany then continued on to Liverpool, England before arriving in Florida).

To learn about researching in passenger records consult John P. Colletta's book, They Came In Ships (Salt Lake City: Ancestry, 1993).
