    1. [CANADA-IMMIGRANTS] 1912 arrival to Canada
    2. Diane Malone
    3. Hi, I have traced my ancestor to arriving in Quebec from Liverpool on the vessel the Lake Manitoba. He arrived May 2nd 1912. He is listed as going to Saskatchewan. The entry is hard to read but I think he was heading for Estevan in Saskatchewan. His occupation is listed as "fitter". I am trying to trace where he went and what he did while in Canada. Would he have needed a work permit or any other ID to be issued for him to work? Is there any record that could help me find him during his time in Canada? I think he was only in Canada for a year or so because in 1914 he was back in England and enlisted in the British Army. Any help is welcome, thank you, Diane EMAILING FOR THE GREATER GOOD Join me

    3. Hello, Can anyone help me find what happened to William Henry Neale and his wife (Mrs Neale) Mary who left Liverpool 5th Sept 1901 for Montreal, on the Australasian? William was born 1863 in Manchester and Mary in 1862 in Birkenhead. They had children who died in England and perhaps left England in the hope of forgetting the past. Any advice on where to look next would be welcome. Noelene Cummins

    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hello everyone There seems to be renewed interest in tracing an ancestor who arrived in Canada before 1865 - a challenging time period! This is an update to the original note I wrote in February 2007 about Immigration Projects Online and ships passenger lists to Canada before 1865.

    1. [CANADA-IMMIGRANTS] ANDERSON WEIR MALON families
    2. Anne Napier
    3. Hello all I am researching the following individuals and their families and am wondering if there would be any records of them entering or leaving Canada? Weir ANDERSON b c1822 Jamaica, d 1876 Dist of York, Ontario. He married in 1848 ENG to Margaret ANDERSON (nee WEIR) b c1826 Jamaica, d 1907 Freshwater, Isle of Wight. Their children: 1. John Weir ANDERSON b 1850 Lancashire ENG, d 1908 Dist of York, Ontario. Married Alice Ellen Maud INCE 1880 Canada and had at least 3 children, all born in Canada: John Weir ANDERSON, Thomas Ince ANDERSON and Walter Fraser ANDERSON 2. Ann ANDERSON b c1852 married Prof MACLEAN from University of Michigan 3. Margaret ANDERSON b abt 1854, married C. Hugo PIETZCKER 1882 Berne Switzerland 4. Adam Walter ANDERSON b 1855 Lancashire ENG, m 1881 Windsor Ontario to Cornelia Brodhead MACDONNELL and they had at least 5 children (the first three born in Jamaica and the last two born in Canada): Weir ANDERSON, John ANDERSON, Linda (or Leila?) ANDERSON, Ellen Margaret/Maud ANDERSON and Jessie Brodhead ANDERSON 5. Charles E. ANDERSON b 1856 Lancashire ENG 6. Weir ANDERSON b 1857 Lancashire ENG 7. Emily Clark ANDERSON b 1860 Lancashire ENG, d 1951 Freshwater, Isle of Wight 8. Helen ANDERSON b 1863 Lancashire ENG, m Mr. MALON (place unknown) and they were living at Vargas, Vancouver Island B.C. in 1915 9. Jane Huntley ANDERSON b 1865 Lancashire ENG 10. Harold Hutton ANDERSON b 1867 Lancashire ENG, living in Jamaica c1890, then Australia from 1892 to at least 1901 and again from c1917 to c1921. There is a strong possibility that he may have visited Canada in the early part of the century (i.e. sometime between 1901 and 1917) and again after 1921. His wife's first name was Mary, but she may not have accompanied him. 11. Arthur George ANDERSON b 1870 Lancashire ENG, living in Australia c1892 to at least 1901. Joined the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force in 1915 so he must have entered Canada sometime between 1901 and 1915. If anyone has access to any of this information, or if you can point me in the direction of any online resources I would be most grateful. Anne (in Australia)

    3. Hi list, further Removal references added to Yesterdays site ( link below). People were removed from a parish when they became "chargeable" and returned to their last Legal Settlement, which is not always where they were born. So it is not always where they were removed from, which may prove useful in tracking down ancestors but where they went to. The latest batch covers Removals to Yorks and Nottinghamshire. Also the odd one to Worcs, Northants and Devon. Of course there are places within the County of Derbyshire t which people were removede as well. New entries for Removals are ; Chesterfield, Dronfield, North Wingfield, Sutton cum Duckmanton Scarcliffe and Pleasley. mike -- http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~spire/Yesterday/index.htm

    3. Hi Judith, You mentioned on the other List that these brothers were born in the 1840's, so they would have been adults when they migrated to the U.S. or Canada. But just for an FYI, there were 24 "British Home Children" with the NEAL surname. (And about 10 more with the NEIL spelling.) (also O'NEIL) And, if you go to www.familysearch.org and check out the Census information, for 1881 Canada and 1880 US, you will find some information there.

    1. [CANADA-IMMIGRANTS] Announcing New List: LAURENTIDES
    2. Betty
    3. Hello, I would like to tell you that I have just started up a new List. I mean it to include research for all the Counties which exist north of the St. Lawrence River in the Province of Quebec. I am aware that many of the Counties have now been grouped into "municiopalities." For instance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argenteuil_Regional_County_Municipality%2C_Quebec I am also aware that for residents of the U.S., the place-name, Laurentides, might not be familiar. As a resident of the U.S., I had to learn about it myself. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurentides_(region) I also had to learn about the Laurentian Mountains: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurentian_mountains I had thought about naming a new List for "Argenteuil County," because that is where some of my ancestors settled. * But I needed to include a much larger area. I thought about naming it, Laurentian Mountains, but found out there was Message Board for LAURENTIDES. So I decided to use the same name. This is the information page: http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/intl/CAN/LAURENTIDES.html I have also found out that the area - north of the St. Lawrence - is often referred to as the Southwest part of the Province of Quebec. But, some refer to as "Quebec North." But, if you look at a map of Canada, you will see that the Province is very large, and there is a very large part of the Province which is MUCH north of the St. Lawrence River. Thank you for your time. Betty (near Lowell, MA, USA) List Administrator for: [email protected] [email protected] (I allow both genealogy and history and geography on my new Lists.) * About 5 years ago someone started up a List for "the former Township of Gore" in Argenteuil County. Some postings are about bordering towns. My ancestors were part of a KERR / HENDERSON family-group which settled there in 1820's.)
