In my spare time I have been creating a database of ships passenger lists.
These would be lists of people who sailed on ships PRIOR to 1850. I have
accumulated a pretty good library of early Canadian books, and have been
rifling through them (because many are not indexed) and collecting the data
that refer to a pioneer sailing to Canada on a particular ship. This is only
because 'no comprehensive lists exist' for this time frame. Britain
inadvertantly destroyed or lost their lists, and you can't find them in
Canada. I have lots and lots of data but only have the years partial
databases created for the years 1816 to 1821 created to date. That would be
ships sailing to Canada in those years from Scotland, Ireland and England
only.(at this time)(France is just a bit further down the road)
Just as I was working on the database I stumbled across the name Playfair,
and at the same time I read Peter's letter attached.
Peter, could you please email me off-list...I have some info that you may be
interested in re: Playfair in Lanark County.
