Ingeneas.com offers a free online database that can be searched by name. A list of existing Canadian records for that name will appear, along with the type of record, and individuals can order a transcribed copy of the specific record.
The Library and Archives Canada is also a valuable resource for individuals looking for family members. Individuals may search through military records, land records, immigration records and vital records to learn more about past family members. Unfortunately, prior to 1865, passenger manifests weren't required by the government to be preserved or recorded to track immigration, so very few still exist. However, there are a number of immigrants and passenger lists that were saved and recorded, like immigrants from Great Britain heading towards Canada.
The Library and Archives Canada compiled these scattered records into an online database that is organized by name. These passenger lists can be searched and will return the full name of the passenger, the year of arrival, any additional information that was included like names of family members, and possibly age at arrival. Also included are the reference number, file number and page for the corresponding record so that individuals may either request a copy from the Library and Archives Canada or visit in person to view the desired records.
