Strange, but it couldn't find me, nor my sister, nor my mother, nor my father, nor my grandmother, nor my step-father - even though there were three separate journeys and four different surnames.

Thanks RK :)

Kiltpin.. what years are you looking for. Anything after 1935 is privacy protected.

Ah, that would explain it. I did think that there was something like that going on, but I saw no notice on the site.

Thanks

You're welcome  :)

For some reason, they like to keep that tidbit of information well hidden. ::)

From Jan. 1, 1936 onwards, those passenger lists are kept with Citizenship and Immigration
Canada. And access to those would require some "jumping through hoops". ;D
