The small print in UK Incoming Passenger Lists, 1878-1960 #general

re Naidia Woolf's posting today: "In response to Celia Male's email re the UK
incoming passengers lists, it is the official stance of the National Archives
outside London (formerly the Public Record Office) that they do *not* have incoming
passenger lists >from countries within the Mediterranean (which of course, includes
Europe). This can be confirmed by checking the National Archives' website. (I'm
assuming that postings to this effect can also be found in JewishGen's archives.) I
had this confirmed by a staff member when I visited the National Archives at Kew
last September."

This is not quite right! ***I*** am there and so are thousands of others - I
embarked in Alexandria in 1945 together with my father, mother and brother. Many
Mediterranean ports are listed as transit stops and their passengers are listed
too - so you may be lucky. This applies too to European ports.

I have written a detailed supplementary posting to this effect to the Discussion
Group and the UK-SIG.
