                          *new* for TheShipsList website   FINALLY!

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 March 2014 is . . .

  o Passengers:
    o South Australia
      o ship City of Adelaide, from London via Plymouth to Port Adelaide 
August 24th, 1874
    o Quebec Steamboats
      o St. Lawrence - 13th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 4th July 1831
      o John Molson - 12th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 6th July 1831
      o Chambly - 12th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 8th July 1831

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.

Three more steamboat passenger list for 1831.   I love the Chambly this 
time ... lots of Scots.   I'm betting they arrived on the brig Salamas 
from Inverness which arrived the same day they embarked on the Chambly. 
  Often the steamboats would leave late at night so the passengers would 
arrive at Montreal in daylight.

    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
