                           *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 April 2014 is . . .

  o Passengers:
    o Quebec Steamboats
      o St. Lawrence - 14th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 12th July 1831
      o John Molson - 13th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 13th July 1831
      o Chambly - 13th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 14th July 1831
     o South Australia
      o barque Pak Wan, from London to Port Adelaide August 25th, 1874
      o ship Murray, from London to Port Adelaide October 5th, 1874

Three more Quebec steamboat passenger list for 1831.   I still love the 
Chambly, full names for most.  Looking rather Irish this time. Found 
this on the St. Lawrence "314	Crazy Devil" Not sure who that might be, 
also "334	Miss Something" ... compiler humour?

Back to short-ship lists for SA 1874.  The MURRAY is a puzzle because 
the original list clearly states that all are Scots, except for the 
Stewart family.  However, I have been unable to find them in any UK 
census records. Others listed as Scots were clearly not! I would love to 
hear from anyone with family on that vessel.

I don't think that *new* for March got posted to AUS-SAGEN, so I am 
repeating the CITY OF ADELAIDE info here
     o South Australia
       o ship City of Adelaide, from London via Plymouth to Port 
Adelaide August 24th, 1874

Back to a nice big list of assisted emigrants to South Australia for 
1874. We had lots of info about this arrival because of her stranding. I 
even added some details about one Cabin family.  We don't often learn 
much about them, but this family, the Wilcox, had three trips on the 
City of Adelaide, so I felt compelled to include their story.

     o Ship Arrivals:
       o Ships to Quebec 1831 (second page finished up to September 1)

I love adding more newspaper accounts, as this 2nd page includes many 
things more than the arrivals of the vessels with settlers, but also 
some accounts of some long passages with passengers running out of food 
and getting help from other ships and even putting into other ports.
I included a couple of Ads ... one for a run-away indentured apprentice 
and another was for a stolen horse ... guess which reward was higher ? 
The names ages and descriptions of the young men would be priceless for 
family researchers.
I'm surprised to see so many settlers still arriving so late in the season
