Approximately 5 million passengers departed the Port of Hamburg, Germany between 1850 and 1934, and during the period from 1880-1914, nearly two thirds of them were from Eastern Europe. The Hamburg passenger lists include about 750,000 Jewish emigrants from Russia, the lion’s share of whom were bound for the United States. A few dozen were identified as having originated in Porozow, although the usual caveats about variations in spelling, errors on manifests, mistakes in transcription and lack of precision in identifying Jewish passengers apply. The Porozow departures from Hamburg began only in 1890.


During this period, separate lists were maintained for “direct” and “indirect” passengers. The former were those who arrived at their final destination aboard the same ship that departed Hamburg; they may have stopped at other ports on the way, but they remained on the same ship until reaching their destination. The latter were those who transferred to other ships before reaching their final destination, usually at other European ports. Passage for indirect passengers was cheaper than that for direct passengers. Beginning in 1911 the two lists were merged.


The table below lists the name, departure date, gender, estimated year of birth (calculated from the age appearing on the manifest), port of arrival and name of the ship. Clicking on the name will open a scan of the original, handwritten manifest in a new browser window.
