Title: Picking Passenger Lists from the Olive Tree

Snippet: Before 1865 ships arriving at ports in Canada did not have to produce a passenger list, and if one was created, there was no obligation to keep them for future reference.

The Olive Tree Lady, Lorine McGinnis Schulze, has created a list of links to help researchers navigate the pre-1865 shipping lanes where hundreds of vessels crossed the ocean to Canada. Schulze has a life-long love for genealogy, and has been researching her own family tree and helping others with theirs for many years.
