Note about image quality

The embarkation lists were microfilmed, and digital images created from the film.
The originals were faint so black pages were inserted to help contrast of text, and the filming was manipulated to help increase contrast as much as possible.
Blank ledger pages were not filmed.
The limitations of the originals mean some pages may appear faint, and some pages may have text from the reverse showing through.
The text within the PDF documents is not searchable.
