*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 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.
