Kingsley to Canada from England
« on: Sunday 07 November 04 05:13 GMT (UK) »
 Looking for Passenger List or any info for Albert or Dorothy Kingsley coming to Canada about 1896.  They appear on the 1901 census in Manitoba but can't find how or when they came here.  Any help would be much appreciated.

lmj,
The only help I'm able to give is a suggestion to look through the Government of Canada's website, 'Canadian Genealogy Centre' at
http://www.genealogy.gc.ca/index_e.html.

There you will find a section on Immigration, Passenger Lists 1865-1935: http://www.genealogy.gc.ca/10/100803_e.html

I hope you will be able to find some information there that can help you.  Good luck,

Meg,

Thanks for the tip I will check it out.  Sometimes you just can't think where to look or what it is called.  I will get on it now.  Thanks again.

lmj,

These aren't passenger lists but they might provide clues:

Have you seen the website for Manitoba Vital Statistics:
http://web2.gov.mb.ca/cca/vital/

It shows:

Albert KINGSLEY married Margaret TAIT on 16 November 1899 in Plap (Portage la Prairie?), Manitoba

and

Dorothy Louise KINGSLEY married Arthur Martin DICKERSON on 14 November 1907 in Plap (Portage la Prairie?), Manitoba.

Search on KINGSLEY

Manitoba GenWeb

Manitoba Genealogical Society


Perhaps someone at the Genealogical Society could point you in the right direction, as well.

Dorothy's marriage record should list her mother's name.  Perhaps then you could search the BMD for her mother's death record and might find some other information that way.   I'm assuming they came to Canada after her mother died but that's just a guess.  Albert's marriage record would show if he was divorced or a widower.

I can't tell if this information for the Portage La Prairie City Library is current but you could try it:
