Just like censues, requirements change over time. Not
every passenger list has been transcribed; not all
were perfect, i.e. formated of requirements. Off line
I receive this for a possible place to seach in
Just scroll down the page and look for "Finding
on Canadian Passenger Lists"
There's a list with links for ship arrivals BEFORE
ship arrivals AFTER 1865. I hope this helps!"

My ancestors came in the early 1800s and I have
not found any ship's
lists that includes them. Were there records then

I also have ancestors who arrived in the late
1800s/early 1900s and on
those passenger lists they were required to give
their last known address,
where they were going, who was "sponsoring" them and
how much money they
had. Was this also required back in the mid-1800s?
