1. Hamburg Emigration Lists
“The city of Hamburg, accommodating emigrants in the past and to this very day, is in exclusive possession of lists of those who passed through her utilising the harbour. Bremen and other cities lost almost all these precious lists, but only Hamburg managed to safeguard complete records covering the flow of emigrants from 1850 to 1934.

What makes these lists so valuable, is the fact that even the hometowns from whence the emigrants came is recorded. Anyone researching a family tree will treasure this crucial factor.

By the year 2003, the city of Hamburg expects to be able to display the lists for the entire period covering emigration from 1850 to 1934. The Hamburg State Archive is the source and safe-keeper of all emigrant lists stemming from this period as well as records of all Hamburg history.

All the data pertaining to the emigrant lists are being processed and brought to the Internet, here at this centre. In April 2000 the Hamburg archives will offer Internet access to the first years: 1890-1893. With this facility in place anyone looking for his "special" ancestor will successfully be able to do so.

The Emigration Port of Hamburg
Due to the efforts of Albert Ballin, Hamburg achieved a leading role as a port of emigration, through the shipping company called HAPAG, the Hamburg-America Freight-Shipping Corporation which he directed.
In 1900 the HAPAG, which in the meantime was renamed the Hamburg-America Line, developed to become the largest shipping line in the world and with it, the importance of the Emigration Port of Hamburg as well. Even though the same number of about 5 million emigrants passed through the port of Bremen, Hamburg emerged as the leading port right up to the last phase in 1914.

It was above all Eastern European Emigrants whose way led via Hamburg.” (taken from the Homepage www.Hamburg.de)

The following Sallmanns are known to date as Emigrants within the Hamburg Project. Otto Sallmann can be found in the list of Ellis Island below as well. Otto Sallmann is one of my Ancestor. I do not know why he filled it in his recordings. When he arrived in New York there are no information about his original residence.

    2. German Emigration Center Bremerhaven
    Since August 2005 an new Home page about the emigrants from Bremerhaven is available: “Between 1815 and 1914 some 33 million Europeans emigrated to the Unites States of America. The movement which began in the 19th century continued on into the 20th century: Europeans were on the move. No less then 7.2 million , women and children traveled to Bremerhaven to embark on ships headed for the New World between 1830 and 1974: 3.7 million Germans, 3.4 million eastern and southeastern Europeans, and 100.000 Scandinavians, all in search of a better life. Bremerhaven was the largest port of emigration in Germany.”

3. Emigrants to New York

The information below shows you the original Sallmann data of Ellis Island Homepage.
"From 1892 to 1924, more than 22 million immigrants, passengers, and crew members came through Ellis Island and the Port of New

York. The ship companies that transported these passengers kept detailed passenger lists, called "ship manifests." Now, thanks to the generous efforts of volunteers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, these manifests have been transcribed into a vast electronic archive, which you can easily search to find an individual passenger."
