Pennsylvania German Pioneers Passenger Lists

Directory of Online Transcriptions of Palatine Passenger Lists

Palatine German Immigrant Ships to Philadelphia 1727-1808

This website is a directory of links to online transcriptions of the passenger lists in Pennsylvania German Pioneers by Ralph B. Strassburger and William J. Hinke. Some of the lists may have come from other sources such as the Pennsylvania Archives series or Rupp's A Collection of Upwards of Thirty Thousand Names of German, Swiss, Dutch, French and Other Immigrants to Pennsylvania from 1727 to 1776.

Since many of these lists are scattered across various websites it was thought that a single directory would be useful to genealogy researchers. More links will be added as they are found.

Most of the immigrants on these lists came from the Palatine (Pfalz) region of Germany. Although these ships are often referred to as Palatine ships, you may also find Swiss, French and Dutch immigrants on these lists. For more information on the series and to learn how to order copies of the passenger lists showing the signatures (or marks) of the adult male passengers on microfiche see: Pennsylvania German Pioneers Research Guide

You will find that many of these ships departed from Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Hamburg or Bremen. Often you will see that they stopped in Cowes or Portsmouth ("last from Cowes," "last from Portsmouth") along the way. Cowes is a port near southern England on the Isle of Wight. Portsmouth is a port on the south coast of England.
