I've heard of the ship and the passengers on that ship were mostly from
I don't believe there were any departure records kept in Britain until 1890.
Can someone on this list that is more familiar with this, let us know.
That ship came into Grosse Ile at the same time as the Irish emigrants came in
from the Potato Famine. Those Irish emigrants were treated terrible.
I'm not certain if there are any passenger lists for Canada. You need to
check your local Mormon LIbrary for a Research Outline for Canada. They cost
about $1.00 plus tax. If you don't know anything about Canadian records, you
should buy this. Canadian records are different than the USA.
You also need to contact the British Isles FHS of Greater Ottawa. In their
journal "Anglo-Celtic Roots" they had had a number of articles about Grosse
Ile. They have a website http://www.cyberus.ca/~bifhsgo

address is: BIFHSGO, P. O. Box 38026, Ottawa, ON K2C 1NO Canada.
