For Interested Members
FamilySearch have just added 1,734,150 indexed records and images from the Canada Passenger Lists, 1881-1922, Record Description
These records include indexes and images of ships' passenger lists (also known as ships' manifests or seaport records of entry).
Contains records for the ports of:
◾Quebec City, 1900-1921;
◾Saint John, 1900-1912;
◾North Sydney, 1906-1912;
◾New York, 1906-1912;
◾Eastern US Ports, 1905-1912.
The lists for United States ports include only those names of passengers with intentions of proceeding directly to Canada.
The Canadian government did not keep lists of emigrants. Before 1947 there was no Canadian citizenship separate from British, and Canadians moved freely throughout the British Empire. Before 1895, when the United States government began keeping border-crossing records, Canadians moved to the United States with few restrictions.
