A great resource that I have mentioned in the past, several times, has also been mentioned in our facebook group recently. The difference now is that Jaime Vasquez has provided the links to the four missing Catalogs that were not available before and Juan Enrique Urtado Rojas has shared two volumes that have the whole lists compiled into them.
I have written to previous blog posts on this subject and you can check them out here:
- Passenger Catalogs From Spain to the Americas – Catálogo de Pasajeros a Indias Durante los Siglos XVI, XVII y XVIII
- Lists of Pasajeros A Indias at Solo Genealogia
These Catalogs basically indexes of everyone that got registered to travel to the new world and are comprised of various volumes.

Well those are it. I think this will be the most up to date source for these catalogs. If you come across volumes 6 and 7 online let me know so that I may add the links here.
