Ship Passenger Lists to Canada AFTER 1865 (please read before posting)
« on: Thursday 01 June 06 15:32 BST (UK) »
AFTER 1865
with many thanks to eillo for this wonderful list :)
Happy hunting.

The National Archives of Canada (NAC) holds immigration
records from 1865 to 1935.  Unfortunately the records
before 1925 are not indexed. To find a passenger you will
need to know an exact date of arrival.

There is no easy way to search Canadian arrival records for
the unindexed period other than reading microfilm. Ships
are on the reel, in order of arrival. You can find the
details at this URL

           http://www.archives.ca/02/020202_e.html

If you want to order filmed passenger lists (remember they
aren't indexed!), a  list of NAC microfilm numbers for
passenger lists to Canada 1865-1922 can be found at

http://olivetreegenealogy.com/ships/filmnos_can1865.shtml

If you are patient, you will soon (?) be able to search
these unindexed years! Library and Archives Canada plans to
digitize passenger lists for 1865 to 1935 as part of their
new Moving Here, Staying Here online exhibition at
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/immigrants/index-e.html

Just thought I would share. Someone kindly did a look up for me on Find My Past website. From this, I then had a ship name, departure date, destination. With this info I then did a search of the un-indexed years for arrival in Canada and was able to locate the appropriate image very quickly for  the arrival of the ship. I then only had to trawl through a few pages to find the entry I wanted.

Thanks Scotmum

Read this link yesterday.  Not always easy to keep abreast of what comes on line without sites like this.  Searched some years ago for my folks to Canada without any success.  Knew it was prior to 1890 so findmypast no good but had a two year time frame, guessed they went out from London and yes, you are right, it isn't that much of a task.  Found wife and two kids without too much trouble "going to husband".  Think I have now found husband as well.

You have helped me solve something that has been on the back burner for a good few years.  Thanks a lot.

Can I take it then that I am wasting my time looking for a war bride and her husband unless I have some idea of when they went and/or what ship they were on?

The only information I have is the maiden name (Liddell) and the future married name (Priest) I am not sure if they married prior to arrival in Canada or after.

The groom served in the RCAF that is all the other info I have other than that the bride who was born in 1922.

Hi Alan

Try findmypast.com/ancestorsonboard.  Not sure how complete the transcriptions are at this point but think that they intend to transcribe all outbound passenger lists from the UK 1890 to 1960.

Good luck

There is a ship list and searchable index  that covers Quebec Ports (including Montreal) for the periods 21 Oct 1906 to 13 Oct 1910


I have been quite successful with this.

It can be found at
http://members.shaw.ca/nanaimo.fhs/

It doesn't cover very much, but it might be useful for someone.
