Findmypast.com has added another decade of records to the UK Outbound Passenger Lists currently available. Records now include a staggering 7.5 million names within 50,553 passenger lists spanning 1890 to 1909 alone. Records, once complete, will cover 1890 to 1960 and are expected to contain more than 30 million individual passengers.
Nearly twice as many people travelled by ship between 1900 to 1909 compared to the previous decade and more increasingly for business and as tourists.
