Site Search Engine
Google's Search Engine is designed to locate everything on ShipPassengers.com: names of thousands of passengers who sailed into the Port of San Francisco during the 1800s . . . and captains, ships, tall tales, and seaport news of the day.
The Passenger Lists
The lists began in 1998 as part of the Maritime Heritage Project established by D. Blethen Adams Levy to preserve maritime history during the 1800s. The focus is the seaport of San Francisco in honor of her great-great grandfather, Captain James H. Blethen. Stories have expanded to include world ports because all countries, including America, are comprised of people from every port o'call around the globe.
The site illustrates the importance of a global awareness; the health and wealth of nations was formed by individuals who migrated seeking refuge and opportunity.
It also illustrates the importance of maintaining all facets of our planet be it flora or fauna for the sake of our children and our children's children.
Books and maps about our world during the 1800s are throughout the site to add to your pleasure in locating lost relatives.
