Immigration from Britain by ship #general

The search for passenger manifests in London is not too simple!

Try their website first:

The passenger manifests are filed year by year, then by port.
They are not indexed. There is a book of ships names etc, which
might help you. Try one of the info files on Jewishgen (think
the book is Morton-Allen?).

If you know the year, can guess the port correctly, and are
prepared to sift through the boxes of manifests, there is a
possibility of success.

good luck & best wishes


Hello Harvey:

Where can I get an address or email address for the PRO in Kew, London?

I have an Uncle who stated on his Naturalization papers that his last
residence was London. He landed in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1901. Would I
be able to find out the name of the ship? I know he didn't walk on water
although I surely would like to think that he had that capability.
