Improved searches on ancestorsonboard passenger lists

With so many records in the BT 27 Outbound Passenger Lists (over 3 million names in the first decade alone), it can sometimes be difficult to identify the right record if you’re searching for a common name.

We’ve improved the search to make it easier to pinpoint the person you’re looking for.

  • You can now specify the name of the ship on which your ancestor travelled.
  • The free search results now give the age of the passenger where this is given in the original.

And we’re not stopping there. We are committed to reviewing and improving our products and listen to our customers’ requests.

Coming soon: you’ll soon be able to narrow your search with the name of a travelling companion – looking for a John Smith travelling with a Sarah Smith cuts down the number of potential entries.

Try out our new, improved passenger list search.
