Passport Info and Passenger Lists


The Centro de Conhecimento dos Azores (CCA)has digitized all the Azorean records. Currently, the passports for all three major ports are online: Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel; Horta, Faial; and Angro do Heroismo, Terceira are up. Find them here.  **Please note that these online records may only display properly in Internet Explorer or Safari web browsers. 

The easiest way to locate the passports is via the Tombo site but you can go directly to the CCA site as listed below: 

  • 1) Go to the Centro De Conhecimento Dos Azores (CCA) site (digital copies of the original records)
  • 2) Click on Pesquisa de Passaportes on the main page just above the map 
  • 3) On the next page, choose your port from the drop down list depending on where your ancestor lived and was MOST likely to sail from. You may have to check all three: Ponta Delgada (Sao Miguel); Angra do Heroismo (Terceira); or Horta (Faial)
  • 4) Click the Procurar button
  • 5) Click on the time frame you are interested in 

Passenger Lists

Here are some Passenger Lists of ships that traveled from the Azores to America in various years. The extractions were done by me, unless otherwise noted. At any rate, they were all extracted from microfilms available at the Family History Center of the Mormon Church. 

In some, the passenger's destination was simply given as "United States." Although I did my best, some of the names were very hard to read and a few, were unreadable. You will recognize those by the strange spelling you will see. 

On these lists, you will notice that, very often, the men were listed first, followed by the women and children. This may make it difficult to identify families you were expecting to be listed together.

Hopefully, though, one of you may recognize a family member you have been searching for. I hope to extract more of these lists in the future.

My thanks to Sheila Casper and Diana Silva for making several of these lists available to me to post on the site.
