I just had to share this exciting news with everyone:
Incoming UK Ships Passenger lists are now online!
Genealogists can now search for ancestors on UK Incoming
Ships Passenger Lists, 1878-1960
These new passenger lists include OUTBOUND lists from
Canada and America as well as other countries such as
Australia, all heading for ports in the United Kingdom.
Read more about this terrific new Ancestry resource at
Neither Canada or America maintained "outbound" passenger
lists. The records for all these ship passengers travelling
between 1890 and 1960 are the only United Kingdom "inbound"
lists, but prior to this month, they were not indexed, nor
The original inbound lists were kept at Public Record
Office in Kew, England, and they could only be viewed in
person. Now they are online and I've been having a lot of
fun finding my own ancestors going back to England &
Ireland from Canada. Sometimes they went for a visit, other
times they had been visiting here in Canada or in America
and were going back home.
I hope you enjoy this new resource as much as I am.
