Forteckning Over Emigranter Fran Ostergotland
This list of emigrants from 1851-60 contains the names of all heads of households and single persons that applied for passports at the county government office in Linkoping. The passport journals were later copied in 1856 and 1861 and the copies sent to the Tabellverket in Stockholm. This list is a transcription from the microfilm of the copies in Tabellverket. This list also provides the emigration parish for about 800 persons, and knowing that, it is in most cases possible to connect the emigrant with the church records, and so find his or her origin.
