The SAL Blog

Working on the salship.se website

The salship.se website was started in 1998, when my sons and I needed some kind of activity during a rainy summer week. Since then the website has developed into a huge portal and resource about an important part of 20th century shipping and Swedish corporate history. The site also plays a central part in my interest in the Swedish - American heritage.

Find passenger lists

I often receive emails from persons who are looking for passenger lists from their relatives' Atlantic crossings on board the ships of the Swedish American Line.

Of course I had heard of Ancestry.com, but I had no idea of the amount of amazing and invaluable information that can be found within seconds. In June this year, I subscribed to the World Deluxe membership and found passenger lists, crew lists, birth and death records, from both the USA and Sweden. Ancestry.com performs the search for you if you know a name, a year, and a place..

From now on, I am going to recommend Ancestry.com as the best and easiest gateway to historical documents about your ancestors.
