I have found a Mr and Mrs Clulo both b. about 1864 age 40 dep. DELAGOA Bay, Mozambique, arr. Southampton 3 Sep 1904, on the 'Durham Castle', Union-Castle Mail Steamship Co. Ltd.
via, [!] Durban[Natal],East London, Port Elizabeth[Algoa Bay],Cape Town, Tenerife.

Is there any way of ascertaining their first names?
How accurate would ages and dob be?

He is described as glassmaker, so I know he is connected somehow.

I have a Thomas Clulo b. 1858, m.Eliza Hibbert, but he was a labourer later and I don't know how he could afford a trip like this!

Any ideas welcome,

I got so excited at finding these had been released only to find nothing, how disappointing!

I'm looking for an Antonas Matiozraitis and and Elzieta Dielinizaitis who emigrated from Lithuania to West Lothian in Scotland around 1902 - 1904 I'd guess. They aren't on the 1901 census and were married in Scotland in 1905.

I was sure they'd be on one of these lists but I can't find anything but I am just being rubbish at using the search fields???

Help!

Happy to be corrected but I believe the lists only show BRITISH citizens  :-\

I found quite a few relatives born in Ireland who became U.S. citizen in the passenger records. However, I've also failed to find (so far) quite a few relatives who were British citizens that I know came back to England and Ireland from India and U.S.
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.

Aha that might explain it! Any ideas where I'd look either online or physically?

The passenger lists are for ships entering British ports from destinations outside Europe. They include all passengers regardless of nationality. Unfortunately there are no collections of passenger lists for journeys within Europe, so you will need to see if there are any other sources to trace your European migrant ancestors.

TNA's Research guide on the subject might help you, or at least convince you it's not worth trying!

Sadly for us, it was perfectly possible for people to move between countries without leaving any kind of paper trail, until around the First World War, when countries started requriing passports and placing limits on immigration.

Thanks for the info Mean_genie

As Madeira seems to have been a regular stopping off point for ships to and from the 'new world' can anyone please have a quick look and see if there is a Miss Hermine Schneider born 1898 arriving between 1915 and 1922.

(I no longer have a subcription to the site)

Thank you
