ACROSS MY DESK: Toronto Emigrant Office Records

DearREADERS,
In an announcement from inGeneas inc., Box 38010, 1430 Prince of Wales Drive, Ottawa, Ontario K2C 3Y7: Toronto Emigrant Office Records <http://www.ingeneas.com>

"Most of these new records are from the registers of the Toronto Emigrant Office, volumes 1 and 2, from 3 January 1865 to 29 December 1876. These almost 18,500 records list those who came to the office looking for assistance from the government to travel to many destinations across south-central Ontario. The records typically provide the following information: date of application [at office]; name of the head of the party; nationality; breakdown of the party by age groupings; name of the ship on which the party traveled to Canada; name of the Canadian port at which the ship landed; and, the destination of party (within Ontario)."

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt      :)
