All Aboard; Finding Ancestors on Passengers Lists

1 Comment

The saying ‘isn’t the world a small place’ is certainly not true when trying to find ancestors who emigrated or worked oversea. Thankfully in this age of on-line media and digitisation, the task has been made a little easier. With the recent addition of UK Outward Passenger Lists on Ancestry UK, along with the UK Incoming Passengers Lists 1878-1960 and the Alien Arrivals list 1810-1811, 1826-1869 this arduous task has become easier. Here are my favourite sites to use, but there are non-digitised sources which can be used, for instance The National Archives¬† and the National Archives Australia.

1. Ancestry UK Immigration and Travel – Subscription
