      3. Three Steps to Success

      Hi Everyone,

      I've just uploaded Surnames M, N, O and P to the online "Index to
      Register of Passports USA 14 November 1834 to 1843" on
      NaturalizationRecords.com website at

      The applicants residences covered all of the USA. These passports
      were granted to citizens of the United States going to foreign
      countries. Passports were granted to those satisified the requirement
      that they be "entitled to receive them"

      Each applicant had to present evidence that they were a citizen of
      the USA and a description of his person: Age, Height (Stature),
      Forehead, Eyes, Nose, Mouth, Chin, Hair,Complexion, Face

      If the applicant's wife, children or servants were to accompany him,
      or any females under his protection, only their names and ages plus
      their relationship to the applicant was needed.

      A big thank you to volunteer transcriber Pamela G for her continued
      hard work on this Passport Project. As well as the surnames added
      today, Surnames A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H and L are online for all to
      use freely.

      You can begin your search at Surnames A at

      Let the page load, then scroll down to see the list of names. Be sure
      to read the intro so you know how to get the full record! Near the
      bottom is a menu to follow for choosing the other surname letters


      Today I uploaded Surnames M, P, Q, S, T, W and Y, Declarations of
      Intention for NY, Books 2 & 3, 1832-1836

      The full project I am working on is an Index to Declarations of
      Intention for Ny 1827-1895. City of Albany New York, City Hall Books.
      I will be indexing these for Volumes 3-21 1834-1860.

      *NOTE: This is not the same database for Naturalization Records
      indexes 1821-1991 online at AlbanyCounty.com)*

      Surnames A start at


      With the help of Donna J, volunteer transcriber, the only surname
      left to do from Books 2 & 3 (1832-1836) is H. All other surnames are
      online and freely available to all researchers.

      Feel free to pass this announcement on to anyone you think might be
      interested, and remember -- all records and databases on
      NaturalizationRecords.com are freely searchable - there is no charge
      to use them.


      Here are 3 Steps to Success when using my sites (I have many, they
      all provide free data for genealogists)

      1. Slow down, let each page load fully before you start clicking

      2. Scroll down - read what is on the page before you start clicking
      on links or search boxes.

      3. Go back to the top of the page, and slowly, reading as you go,
      make your first selection.



      There are hundreds of online lists and links to lists going to Canada
      at Olive Tree Genealogy's ships Passenger Lists online for Canada


      There are also search engines to search various databases of ships to
      Canada at


      They include most ships lists on the 'net (going to Canada)and the
      InGeneas databases (2 of them) for immigration to Canada 19th and
      20th Centuries.

      Before 1865 shipping companies were not required by the government to
      retain their passenger manifests. This means passenger lists may not
      be available for the time period of interest to you.

      There are some passenger lists archived at the NAC (National Archives
      of Canada) for the time period 1817-1831. The NAC also holds
      scattered records for the years 1732 and 1749 to 1760 for immigrants
      who sailed from France.

      There are some passenger lists which were kept by shipping agents in
      the originating country. For example, the Passenger Books of J & J
      Cooke, Shipping Agents gives sailings from Londonderry to
      Philadelphia PA, Quebec, and St. John New Brunswick from 1847 to 1871.

      Olive Tree has some passenger lists from these records online, and
      will be adding more as time permits. There are also the William
      McCorkell & Co. lists but they begin in 1863 and end in 1871.

      The Hawke Papers, letterbooks of Chief Emigrant Agent Anthony B.
      Hawke are also available. They cover the years 1831 to 1892.

      There are also some special collections housed in Ontario University
      Libraries, and more details on those can be found in my Immigration
      to Canada before 1865 article online at
