Donostia-San Sebastian. The website: www.entradadepasajeros.com.ar, provides online registries of more than 340,000 immigrants who arrived in Argentina in the 19th century, including, of course many Basques. The site is the result of work done by a large group of Argentine volunteers who are genealogy fans, and who have dedicated themselves for several years to this task.
The search system is simple and accessible: all you have to do is include the last name of the person you are looking for and the search engine provides the information, including the person’s origin, the year they came, and the boat they arrived on….In some cases, it also includes a photo from the original registry where this information is kept.
This search can be very useful for those wishing to do their family trees, in Argentina who are looking for their origins, as well as those in the Basque Country looking for information in a family member who immigrated. Thanks to Antzinakofor letting us know about this resource.
