Emihamn is a database of passenger lists compiled from police records for Swedish emigrants departing from major Swedish ports between the years 1869-1950. Almost all emigrants were required to register with the port police prior to leaving the country. The register generally includes the passenger's name, occupation/title, age at the time of emigration, birthplace or place of residence, county, destination, and date of emigration, among other information. It is useful as a resource for genealogists who know their ancestor's name and date of emigration, but do not know the ancestor's birthplace.
