April Showers Bring Free Passenger Lists

Ancestry.com is offering free access to its U.S. Passenger List Collection from April 12 through April 30. This includes the recently added Canadian Border Crossings, 1895-1956. My ancestors from Quebec and New Brunswick would join me in celebrating if they weren't so dead.

Thank you for bringing my attention to this. I have now spent quite some time tracking down ancestors that emigrated to the US at the turn of the last century and am quite eager to show the results to my father who is a real genealogy enthusiast.

It is amazing to be able to look at the actual passenger lists and even photographs of the ship that took my then very young great aunt on a journey into a future she knew very little of...

Lots of thanks!

Chris

They never even return my calls.
