durham family emigration to canada

Trying to track down the emigration of any Durham family from Tongland area around 1900/1905.

Anyone help on the whereabouts i may find a passenger list or any documentation?or even the likely departure port in the early part of the given century.

Any help in this area may help piece together a multitude of unanswered questions.

Regards to all

Billy, the 1901 Canadian census is indexed and on-line (free) at automatedgenealogy.com
An army of volunteer transcribers are working on the 1911.
Can you give us more details so some reader might be able to help you? Give us whatever details you have in terms of first names, ages, location, occupation. Any idea where they settled in Canada?
