Passenger Lists of Ships leaving Scotland

There was never a central emigration register kept in Scotland of the many Scots who left for North America and Australasia. Instead the ship’s manifest, which listed all passengers, travelled with the ship and was lodged at the overseas port of entry. Some of these manifests were subsequently handed in to archives or libraries, while others were simply lost. There has been a considerable worldwide effort in recent years to put on the web the details of these ships and their surviving passenger lists. for more click here
