German Emigration Records


Many German emigrants exited through the ports of Bremerhaven and Cuxhaven.  Bremerhaven was the port of Bremen because the Bremen port was full of silt and needed dredging.  Ships could not get into Bremen.  Cuxhaven was the port for Hamburg.  Other German ports were primarily located along the eastern sea board and included Stettin, Gdansk (Danzig), Libau, Memel, and Riga. Germans also used Scandinavian ports (especially Copenhagen). The ports in Antwerp, Belgium and le Havre, France were also used.
