Passenger Lists: Common Classifications of Passengers

Many passenger lists were prepared by class of passenger. The earlier passenger lists often printd separate lists for each class of passenger carried by the vessel. Later passenger lists often combined classes - especially Cabin Class and Tourist / Third Class. It was very unusual for ships to print all classes of Passengers in one list - unless all Passengers they were carrying were of one class by design.
