A few years back I found my Scottish grandmother and her son [my Dad] on a ship bound for Canada. I had already found them arriving in Canada, so I debated on spending the money to also buy this one [their departure port records]. I finally coughed up the dough and purchased the record from FindMyPast and was totally surprised to find different information when comparing the two ships manifest records [what most call 'ships passenger lists']. Nothing contradictory ... but additional info I would not have had otherwise.

This is a great opportunity to try the site out without spending even that 1 pound I wrote about a couple days ago. What have you got to lose when it's "FREE"!! Hahaha

Happy Searching!
