Library and Archives Canada Miscellaneous Immigration Index

The Library and Archives Canada (LAC) (formerly the National Archives of Canada and National Library of Canada) holds a few lists of immigrant settlers and passenger lists scattered within various collections, mostly relating to immigrants from Great Britain arriving in Canada between 1801 and 1849. Staff of the Canadian Genealogy Centre prepared a nominal card index to most of those lists, which is referred to as the Miscellaneous Immigration Index. With the LAC’s permission we have input the information from those cards into a database containing approximately 15,000 names. A list of sources is also provided, which gives a brief description of the information that can be found in each record. for more click here
