Hello! My name is Stefanie from the Philippines.

I am doing research about the Larrinaga Line, specifically one of their ships called "Buenaventura". Buenaventura sailed on her maiden voyage on May 16, 1871 from Liverpool, calling at Cadiz for passengers (one account says Barcelona as well), Suez, Aden, Galle, Singapore en route to Manila. She arrived back at Liverpool on November 3, 1871 to discharge some cargo of hemp, spices, sugar, tea, and boxes of cigars. She was the first vessel under a Spanish flag to have traversed the Suez.

687997


Now, I've been searching and searching for a passenger list of the Buenaventura ship in 1871 but all I found was a crew list. Does anyone know where to find the passenger list of the vessel during that year (+/-)?

Also, I'm hoping to find Paulino Aboitiz that may be on board as a passenger in the Buenaventura ship that time. I just want to confirm this.
