Digitalized Holland Amerika Line Passenger Lists Reveal Famous Names

Want to see if your notable ancestor raveled across the Atlantic? “Volunteers have digitalized some 150,000 handwritten passenger lists naming people who travelled on the Holland Amerika Line (HAL) between Rotterdam and the United States. The digital archive, which is kept at the Rotterdam city archive and accessible to the public, covers the period between 1900 and 1969 when millions of people made the journey and took three years to complete.”
