Happy New Year to all !!

                         *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 December 2012 is . . .

  o Immigration Reports:
    o Immigration Reports for Adelaide, 1866

These are great Immigration Reports which I managed to find when I was 
searching for information about the wrecked immigrant ship AMOOR, whose 
passengers, most of them at least, were transferred to the ship 
Trevelyan.  The reports state that some returned home rather than embark 
on another vessel, right away at least.  After reading what a terrifying 
situation they endured, I wouldn't blame them at all.  If anyone has 
family on the Trevelyan, they were certainly made of stern stuff.

  o Passengers:
    o South Australia
      o ship Salamanca, from London via Plymouth to Port Adelaide 18th 
January 1866
      o ship Trevelyan, from Plymouth to Port Adelaide 21st March 1866
    o Quebec Steamboats
      o Canadian Eagle - 32nd trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 1st October 1835
      o Canadian Eagle - 33rd trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 8th October 1835
      o Canadian Eagle - 34th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 10th October 1835
      o Canadian Eagle - 35th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 17th October 1835
      o Canadian Eagle - 36th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 23rd October 1835
      o Canadian Eagle - 37th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 28th October 1835

The first two 1866 vessels with assisted emigrants, for South Australia. 
  The ships being hired for emigrants were becoming larger, especially 
the Trevelyan.  That passenger list was a bit of a challenge because the 
former residence information was limited to either England, Scotland or 
Ireland, but we did manage to identify many, especially the families. 
Any input from family would be appreciated, especially the maiden names 
with a ? after it.

The six CANADIAN EAGLE steamboat passenger lists for October 1835 are 
the last for 1835. I was surprised to see immigrants still arriving that 
late in the season.  The last list, the 37th for that steamboat in 1835, 
even has some Emigration Society passengers, two families only had half 
of the steamboat fare covered by the Society ... I had never seen that
