COMING SOON! fully indexed Canadian Ships Passenger Lists, 1865-1935

I received this note from the Media Group publicising this wonderful event. You must will need an Ancestry.ca or Ancestry.com membership to use the indexes so if you are not a member, you can sign up for an Ancestry membership here

*** ANNOUNCEMENT ***

On Tuesday the 16th of September 2008, Ancestry.ca in partnership with the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) will announce the world-first online launch of the complete and fully indexed Canadian Passenger Lists, 1865-1935.

This is a comprehensive collection of passenger lists for all Canadian ports during this key immigration period and includes more than 5.5 million names of those who travelled from around the world to settle in Canada.

You will have the opportunity to interview the descendents of Canadian immigrants who appear in the collection and learn from genealogy experts about tracing your own family's history.

Please join us on September 16 at the Toronto Archives Building at 255 Spadina Road at 10:30 a.m.
