I Can't Find My Immigrant Ancestor

Finding our ancestors who left Scotland and emigrated to Canada, America, India, South Africa, New Zealand or Australia can be difficult, but it doesn't have to be. FindMyPast has a database of those leaving the UK.

 They have now extracted those records and placed them on a separate website, Ancestors On Board. Also in this database are businessmen or diplomats who may have traveled regularly between the UK and other points in the Commonwealth.

Although stand-alone, the website links you back to FindMyPast UK to view the image of the ships passenger list. This is a pay-per-view site and each image is 5 credits to view.
