Brides of War

Thousands of war brides immigrated to America after World Wars I and II. WWI brides often traveled to their new country with their husbands on ships known as “dependent ships”, where the men and women were berthed in separate quarters. WWII brides came to America on special war bride transports. Passenger lists and ship manifests should contain information for most American war brides.
