US (Community Project), Maryland, Baltimore—Airplane Passenger Lists, 1954–1957


Project Home Page



About This Project

This project is a collection of passenger lists and lists of arrivals in Baltimore from 1954 to 1957. The passenger lists are digital copies of the original records. These records were either handwritten or typed on preprinted forms. The records are arranged by the date of entry into the United States. We are indexing only the names of the passengers who arrived, not the officers or crew of the airplanes.
