V. 1 #35: New on Olive Tree Genealogy
This is our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, so I have many
pies still to bake, and stuffing to start for our huge
turkey. My grandchildren (ages 2 and 4) arrive today and it
should be quite hectic. Before I got caught up in the
festivities, I wanted to share some of my more recent
uploads and changes on Olive Tree's pages.

I have graphics of ships lists which I have never put online
on Olive Tree due to space limitations. Since I want
researchers to be able to use these lists, and it may be
some time before I have time to transcribe them, I have
begun putting them online at
If anyone wishes to donate lists for all to share online,

Search Engines - making your research easier!
I have updated all my state search engines for ships
passenger lists. These search engines were custom made for
Olive Tree Genealogy and allow researchers to search
multiple websites for lists.
At present I have the following state search engines online
New York (2 search engines)
North & South Carolina
The total number of ships you can search from these USA
search engines is 5, 165
Ships to Canada may be searched from one search engine at
I've completed and put online pages for ethnic immigration
to North America. These pages offer links to ships passenger
lists, and alternate resource ideas for those hard-to-find
ancestors. Although I have titled them ".... to USA" please
refer to them for ancestors who may have come through Canada
as well as USA.
Here is what I have online so far:
Germans & Swiss to USA
Palatines (Germans) to PA
Irish to USA
Italians to USA
Dutch to USA
Scottish to USA
Russians to USA
Huguenots to USA
Quakers to USA
Good luck, have fun, and I hope you find an ancestor or two!
