Apologies and the Passport Link

I’m sorry to everyone who had to scour Ancestry.com in search of the U.S. Passport database. Some doofus forgot to include it in the newsletter. (Yep, that would be me.) 😉

I’ve added it to my article and you can also click here to access the Passport database. Click here to read the article. Please let us know what you’ve found in the comments section.

  1. Tried again with new link. Once again passports of Prince and Eileen Hopkins have another person’s picture on the opposite page

  2. Hi Juliana, I loved the Passport Database. There are a few things that I learned that I am greatful for. One is the written description of what my great,great grandfather Ferdinand Tvrdik looked like. Another is that I learned the date of his April, 1947 birth–the 4th. I now have a written record of his handwriting and signature. But best is that I now know where in Bohemia the Tvrdik family came from. That is Zdeslavice, Bohemia, then Austria, now in the Czech republic. I was able to share all of this with my 81 year old mom who is 100% Czech. From research I knew that my grandfather’s family came from Kasejovice, Blatna, Bohemia. Through the Passport Link I now have the same information for my grandmother’s side. This was an amazing find!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. With surnames like Smith (Scotland), Fisher (Germany), Morgan and Taylor, it is very difficult to find and identify the correct person. The Passport data base is not that hard to find on ancestry.com. I keep looking and may have found one of the Fishers (Fischer)but my “Ira” is “john Ross Smith” who seems to have appeared out of nowhere in the mid 19th Century and never went back to Scotland.

  4. Yeh!
    I got up early one morning on a day I was headed out to the National Archives. I saw Ancestry had a new data base called passports.
    I typed in Charles Striebeck and up came my husband’s grandfather ‘s passprot with city of birth, ship he sailed on to America, how long he was planning to stay in Germany, when he left for Germany etc. I was so tickled. This was an important find.
    I have been in contact for the last 5 years with a man in Germany who is researching Striebeck’s. We were trying to prove the relationship. This gentleman lives 20 miles from my grandfather’s birth place.
    Now off to the FHC to rent films to find the birth record of Charles A. Striebeck.

  5. In our family tree I have posted family pictures, but had none for my husbands grandfather, knew little about him, in the passport database, I found him, returning to Ireland in 1924, with his picture, as well as a physical description of him.

  6. Wow! It’s great to see so many folks finding success in the Passports. This was really an awesome Christmas present for us, eh?
