      St. Mary's, built in 1763, was the second Roman Catholic institution

      Another immigration database has just been put online at

      It is "Names of Emigrants from the 1845-1847 Records of James
      Allison, Emigrant Agent at Montreal"

      From 1823 to 1849, James Allison was a government emigrant agent at
      Montreal, Quebec Canada. He was responsible for the provisioning and
      transportation of destitute immigrants from Montreal to locations
      mostly in Upper Canada (Ontario). There were several Emigration
      Agents in Upper and Lower Canada, each was resonsible for assisting
      poor immigrants in finding employment, shelter, provisions and
      transportation to their final destination.

      This database is an index to names (first and last) with information
      on where and how to obtain full details if you find an ancestor.

      This helps to fill in the challenging early years of Canadian
      immigration so don't miss having a look if you have a missing
      ancestor in this time period. Many immigrants arriving in Canada
      were on their way to USA, as fares were generally cheaper coming
      into Canada, so this database may help those looking anywhere in N.

      Several ships with passenger names have been added to the ongoing
      1809 Pennsylvania Baggage Lists at

      These baggage lists contain the names of passengers who had to pay
      taxes on excess baggage. It does not contain the names of passengers
      who were exempt because their luggage was not over the limit.


      As always, my current list of free databases is at
