Canadian Passanger Lists Now Online

Hello All -

Just saw in the paper "Scottish Daily Mail" that the Canadian passanger list for 1865-1935 are now online (only the years 1865-1922 are up). I had a quick peek at the site and it looks great - the lists are digitally viewable. The only thing about it is that it will take time to look through if you are not sure of the specifics of your ancestors immigration to Canada. There is no seaching by a person's name unfortunately. However, if you do happen to know when and where your ancestor landed you can go right to the image. The database if available through the Library and Archives Canada website. The website is for a direct link to the database : http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/passenger/index-e.html?PHPSESSID=lrued5p1q7qbiq6k5f6bv8jn65

Until Next Time -
