                          *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 2013 is . . .

The last 1866 vessel with assisted emigrants, for South Australia. The 
PEERESS, then the CANTERBURY for 1867 which actually arrived Dec 31 
1866.  The Peeress still has lots of Irish as we saw in the other 1866 
ship, the Canterbury however, has lots of English from a variety of 

The CHAMBLY steamboat lists for 1831 are still the best. The CHAMBLY 
compiler still doesn't number all the child passengers one by one and 
often lumps 2 or even 3 children together to count as "one."  I have 
made margin notes about this.

The ST. LAWRENCE unfortunately was badly filmed, clear at the top of the 
page and out of focus and blurred at the bottom, but I have been trying 
to pluck out initials and partially names.  The compiler does have a 
sense of humour though.  Last month I forgot to mention, for the 8th 
trip up for the 10th June 1831 he recorded 3 men like this ...

385-387	Tom, Dick & Harry

... who knew that this was in vogue as early as 1831 !!   :-}
