[#5580] Passenger list of Bark Maryland 1869 - Bergen to Q

Recommended Posts

Gjest Dolores Shirts

I am trying to find the police record for the emmigrants who sailed on the Bark Maryland 1869 from Bergen to Quebec. I have seen the passenger list as it was entered in Quebec, but my family were not on the list. I know they sailed on that ship that year because of a copy of a diary kept by one of the family. Can anyone help me figure out the procedure for the police registration in Bergen. Thank You for any help you can give me.

Most unfortunately the emigrant roll, kept by the Bergen police, covering the years 1867-1873, have been lost, so the passenger lists is the best record available.

Thank you for the quick reply. The passenger list that I copied contained English headings, and so I thought they might have originated in Quebec where they first landed. Might there be a passenger list that originated in Bergen? And if so, where would such a list be kept?

Is it not possible that Bark Maryland made more than one trip during the same year? And is the passenger list you are referring to just covering one trip?Hans
