Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and Ancestry.ca will focus on indexing the Quebec City passenger lists from 1870 - 1900, totalling more than 750,000 names. The digital images of these and other Canadian ships passenger lists are already on the LAC website but can only be searched by ship name or date of arrival.
The index for Quebec City will be available free of charge on LAC as well as on Ancestry.ca. Eventually the entire Canadian passenger list collection from 1865 to 1935, which includes ports in Halifax, St. John, Vancouver, Victoria and North Sydney, is digitized and indexed.
In addition to the Canadian passenger list collection, later this year Ancestry.ca and LAC will make available border crossings records from the United States to Canada that took place between 1908 and 1935.
These additions add to Ancestry.ca's current online Canadian Border Crossing Collection, which include more than 4 million names of individuals who crossed the Canadian-U.S. border between 1895 and 1956.
