New Data on Olive Tree Genealogy
- 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.
It's easiest to use the link online at
