The Penny Magazine, published every Saturday, was aimed at the working
class. It was part of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful
Knowledge's program for liberal reform. for its reader, however, it was
a source of information on subjects of general interest: everyday things
like tea and coffee, well-known places in England, a series on animals
and birds of Britain, descriptions of prsent-day manufacturing, even an
American alaman and a serial of a personal account of an immigrant's
problems. Poetry was published, too, and there are several illustrations
in each issue.

The information on these pages has been extracted from various
government records, as well as the odd shipping record (mostly from the
Allan Line). It contains, voyage accounts, emigration information, lists
of ships sailing to Canada, information on the ports, and on the people.
Many of these lists give the name of the ship, Master, Port of
Departure, Port of Arrival and other such information. Some list the
organization which sponsored the emigrants. Since passenger lists are
rarely available for the early ships which came to Canada there are few
of those, but other sources are being sought. Thanks to Irene
