The hub of the planet's genealogy network is http://cyndislist.com -- check
it out . Everytime I browse through there, there's more. You can reach about
all ship lists from there. If someone doing ship lists hasn't figured out they
need to get linked to from Cindi's -- wow, are they newbies!!
However after you tire of searching the Internet for transcriptions (I would be
amazed if 1% of all ship lists are transcribed free on the internet), check out
this webpage that has guide to ship lists (alas -- the rest of them. The ones
in archives!): www.rootsweb.com/~bifhsusa .
However before you give up on technology, browse to
www.familytreemaker.com and check out their CD's. The most important
of these is CD 354 -- Passenger and Immigration Lists Index by Filby. If you
read the guide above (or any of the free courses on immigration at
www.rootsweb.com, http://genealogy.com/university (I think) or ...what's the
third that's good? I forget...) ....Anyhow, they'll all tell you to check
You can trek down to your local genealogy library and spend a lot of time
looking up your names, transcribing what you find, deciphering the source info,
or use the CD. The CD is heaven!
Family Treemaker also has several Immigrant bundles and at least one CD
that is just of Irish immigrants in your period. Or you can trek on down to
local library and look your ancestor up in the books that the CDs were made
from -- IF they are there. Do check first. If they don't have the books you
yet, buy the CD and donate it when done. That may get you a tax refund.
I think one of the CD's includes Irish immigrants to Canada.
There's also a great Canadian Website that sells the CDs in Canadian
dollars. Where is it? Duh!! I'd check cyndi's list if I really wanted to know.
Best of luck,
