I am new here and I just wanted to thank you very much..I used some of your links for the ship manifest and found my Great Grandparents and some of their children (one of them being my Grandmother) plus I was able to download the photos of the manifest and passed it on to my family members. Seeing their names and the document gave us more of a "real" connection to our family's history.

Am I wasting my time trying to find a passenger list from 1828 arrival into Canada from Lanarkshire Scotland?

Hi, I am looking for Maude (Maud) BUCKINGHAM (1884), travelling with her young son, William BUCKINGHAM(1910), right after the Titanic left England, the name Carpinthia seemed to be what was mentioned to a family member, so I have tried to view all ships of the same name, she was heading to Vancouver, Canada. Her husband Horace Buckingham (1885)did the same trip shortly after, leaving Bedfordshire England, and arriving in Vancouver, Canada.

Any help would be appreciated, as to where to start looking, thank you all.

Hello,

Didn't want to create a new topic if I was wasting people's time. I can't quite work out when a search of passenger lists is or isn't possible.

I'll explain -

I know some relations of mine arrived in Canada at the port of Saint John in New Brunswick between Late 1921 and the end of 1924. As they had to fill in form 30A.

They where Albert William Foden, his wife Daisy (Nee Knight) and daughter Irene who was born in 1921.

The family lived in the Southport area of Lancashire before their travels.

Thanks

grub>     I was looking for Canadian immigrants and found some of mine on "Pier21"
however  , I tried to get a link for the site for your post and could only get this:






Visit Pier 21


canadaonline.about.com ... Travel and Tourism Museums


The Canadian Immigration Museum at Pier 21 in Halifax tells the stories of immigrants, troops, and wartime evacuees who arrived by ship to find a new life in ...
  it takes u to the search engine  but there was a simple URL which I cant get to open
so maybe someone can work on improving a link.....   thanks grub :)

fastfusion,

Here is a link to the Pier 1 homepage. If you scroll to the bottom left side, there is a link to 'search our virtual walls'. This is where I have found my rellie. It is my understanding that this shows the 'brick' of the person who purchased one as a memorial to their arrival. You don't get any other arrival info due to privacy laws. It is also my understanding that they do not publish names of arrivals otherwise (although someone may correct me on this).

http://www.pier21.ca/home/

You can look under the 'research' heading for more info about passenger lists. They are also available up to 1935 (not beyond, due to privacy laws) at Library and Archives Canada for free or through Ancestry to this date.

You might like to check if your local public library subscribes to Ancestry Library Edition. This would give you access to the Canadian passenger records, and other records too.

I think findmypast (a pay site) has outgoing passenger lists for Canadian bound passengers up to about 1960, although I'm not sure how complete the records are.
