                         *new* for TheShipsList website

All the new and updated files and databases have been placed on their 
own page(s) Find them on the front page in between the big arrows
                            --------------> <---------------

At the bottom of each of these pages I have placed links named " 
previous month " and " next month " so you are able to navigate back and 
forth between the monthly *new & updated* pages, as I only keep three 
months of *new* page links on the Home page.  New for June 2013 is . . .

   o Ship Arrivals:
     o Ships to Quebec 1831 ...still in progress, however ...

... as I'd written last month, the first page completely finished .. 
with some really great stuff, even if you aren't looking for 1831 Quebec 

   o Immigration Reports:
     o Immigration Reports for Adelaide, 1866-1867 arrivals (October 
1867 report added)

   o Passengers:
     o South Australia
       o S.S Aldinga, ex S.S. Great Britain, from Liverpool to Hobson 
Bay, Vic., to Port Adelaide 16th April 1869
       o SS. Penola, ex ship Gresham, from Plymouth to Hobson's Bay, 
Vic. to Port Adelaide 29th June 1869
     o Quebec Steamboats
       o John Molson - 2nd trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 3rd May 1831
       o St. Lawrence - 1st trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 4th May 1831
       o Chambly - 3rd trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 7th May 1831
       o St. Lawrence - 2nd trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 11th May 1831

The two lists of South Australia arrivals for 1869 are pretty 
fascinating.   There were no direct lists of assisted emigrants to SA in 
1869, instead, emigrants arrived at Port Melbourne, on the vessels named 
above, and then took coastal steamers to Port Adelaide.  At first we 
didn't know how the women who had arrived at Melbourne on the Gresham, 
had gotten to Adelaide, but then I found this ...  thank you Trove !!

 >> The s.s. Penola, Captain F. P. Snewin, left the Queen's Wharf 
yesterday morning, for Adelaide, via the intermediate South Australian 
ports. On reaching the bay she went alongside the immigrant ship 
Gresham, from London, and took on board a number of single women, who 
have come out in the Gresham, for Adelaide, via Melbourne <<

The 1831 Quebec steamboats are coming along very nicely.  After 
finishing the earlier newspaper issues, I moved back to the beginning of 
the 1831 steamboats and I must say, I think the 2nd trip of the ST. 
LAWRENCE has been my most favourite... maybe ever.  It was a little 
frustrating because rather than numbering the emigrants, the compiler 
just numbered the lines.  He was however very precise about the 
passengers with first names of the head, instead of initials, and 
relationships indicated, like sister-in-law, brother, brother-in-law and 
even father-in-law.   Because of his numbering, I now have it confirmed 
that there was NO fare charged for children under 3 years.  This means 
that if the other lists don't show enough children when someone finds 
possible ancestors, by reading numbers and the fare, we now know that 
those lists just don't record the under 3 children at all.

Please share this *new* for TheShipsList website email, with any other 
list to which you belong if you think it might be of interest or value 
to those list members (in other words, on-topic).
Enjoy !!
