Our parents are from Germany. Is there a fee to look up info about them coming to the USA in 1954 while we are visiting the museum?
We have a copy of the ships name and passenger manifest from Bremerhaven to New York City.
Thank you, Irmgard
as Mike, Jochen and Vanesse have already written, there is no fee for using our familiy research once you have paid the entrance fee. Are you planning to visit Bremerhaven? If you do so: Enjoy your stay and do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions!
Yours, the team of the German Emigration Center
Once you have paid entrance, it is free to use the databases on the museum computers. There are not many computers so you may have to wait.
As well, they do not have information on every ship or emigrant.
You can look up much of the information from home.
Regarding your query about costs at the museum, once you have paid your fee to get in, then the research into your family history are included.
No, use of the museum's files is free of charge. However, if you later prefer to have your findings printed out for you to take home, there is a € 5 contribution to pay.
