In total more than 17,800 passengers between 1713 and 1787. Each passenger is represented by his last name, first name, description, place of origin, departure date, destination, name of his ship and its captain.

  • Registers of certificates of identity and catholicity, bids and passports concerning the passengers embarked in Bordeaux. This information was recorded by the Amitiés Généalogiques Bordelaises in the Departmental Archives of Gironde
