      Hello everyone,

      I hope your weather wherever you live is as nice as ours

      OliveTreeGenealogy is continuing with spring cleaning! I'm
      sorting and organizing my basement (what a job) and also my
      genealogy records. The genealogy organizing is a nice break
      from the musty basement :-)

      I'm amazed at the good stuff I'm finding in my piles and
      piles of papers and records. Here's what's new online:

      Before 1865 Canadian Ships Passenger Lists were not
      archived so it's hit and miss whether or not you can find
      an ancestor. But good news! Now you can request a search
      for your ancestor in the following Books of Immigration and
      Ships Passenger Lists Records from my personal collection.
      Note that these Canadian immigration records are *not*

      [BOOK 1] Names of Emigrants 1845-1847. Records of James
      Allison, Emigrant Agent at Montreal (Quebec Canada)

      [BOOKS 2-4] Canada Company Remittance Books 1843-1847 in 3

      [BOOK 5] Index of Passengers Who Emigrated to Canada
      between 1817 and 1849.
