**NEW!** SEARCH ENGINES FOR SHIPS PASSENGER LISTS TO NORTH AMERICA
I have begun a new project on Olive Tree Genealogy! Finding ancestors
has never been easier! Surnames are at your fingertips with my custom-
built Search Engines.
These Search Engines will search most FREE Internet pages (including
Olive Tree Genealogy) for ships passenger lists to USA & Canada.
Search engines have been custom built for the following states:
Maryland, Texas, Louisiana, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New
England (includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire,
Rhode Island & Vermont) and Texas.
The total number of ships to USA you can search from my new search
boxes as of today is 2,235. New ships are being added daily so
don't despair if you don't find an ancestor the first time.
More Search Engines will be added for the following states as soon as
I have time to develop them: Massachusetts, North & South Carolina,
California, Washington, Alabama, Hawaii, Florida, Delaware
One of the little known online databases for USA ships is found at
the NAC (National Archives of Canada) for immigration 1925-1935.
Immigration records, including some border crossings are searchable
for the ports of Providence, Rhode Island; Boston, Massachusetts; and
New York City, New York. The NAC database for these US cities has a
total of 6,293 names and you can now search the database from the
Olive Tree Genealogy pages!
This same database at the NAC has thousands of Canadian entries for
the years 1925-1935. I have now set up a search box for your
convenience which will search the Canadian ports of Quebec City;
Montreal, Quebec; Halifax Nova Scotia; Saint John, New Brunswick;
North Sydney, Nova Scotia; Vancouver, British Columbia; & Victoria,
For those seeking ships to Canada, I have one search box which
searches ships to all of Canada (both those on the Olive Tree pages
and those on other sites). New ships are being added as I find them,
and as of today the total number you can search from the
convenience of my site is 265.
