San Francisco Passenger Lists 1850-1864

Information on the Books by Louis J. Rasmussen

The official records for the port of San Francisco, California in this time frame were destroyed by a fire in 1940. This series attempts to reconstruct those missing lists from newspaper accounts and journals. You might check your local library to see if they have these books. Or click on a title for availability and ordering details. The entire series is indexed in Filby's Passenger and Immigration Lists Index (see below). These books do not contain passenger lists of ships from Asian ports such as Hong Kong. For this time frame those lists have not survived.
