She Was Outgoing, But Not Incoming

I see that Ancestry.com has added UK Incoming Passenger Lists, 1878-1960. No sign of my great-grandmother yet, though I know she sailed to Boston from Liverpool in 1910. If I can can find no evidence that she arrived in England before leaving England, I will have to conclude that she was English, and that her Finnish accent was actually Liverpudlian.

Update: Darn, it's only for passengers "from foreign ports outside of Europe and the Mediterranean." There are some entries, though, for passengers who—like my great-grandmother—embarked from Hanko, Finland.
