RMS Alaunia to Vancouver Aug 1928
« on: Wednesday 13 April 05 13:34 BST (UK) »
Can anyone tell me what information would be available about RMS Alaunia sailing from UK to Vancouver in 1928? I am not sure when she sailed, but the voyage covered August of that year.

Many thanks
Nick

Nick,

Have you seen the Government of Canada website:

http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/02011802_e.html

When I searched on the following, I got some hits, but when I entered Vancouver as the port of arrival, nothing came up:

Year of Arrival:  1928
Ship:  Alaunia
Port of arrival:  All ports

You can also search by passenger name.

Regards,
Josephine

Here is a link to BC Archives, if I can help you with a look up to any of these I am in BC and will do what I can!

Thanks Melanie. I followed the first link without success, so was wondering if my information was at fault somehow. I'll check it out as soon as possible.
