Subject: [TSL] Edmonton, ALB,CAN to London 1914 ??
Date: Wed, 20 Feb 2008 22:57:21 +1100
Discovered today that a good friends fathers family did not travel
across the Pacific Ocean to Sydney . What gave that idea bad vibes
from the start was her Dad telling her he had lost his hat in the
Panama Canal .!
I had no idea what made me type her grandfathers names into Findmypast
passenger departures guessing 1914 - 1919
And WOW !!!! there was Stephen BJ FERGUSON, wife Elizabeth & 6
children as passengers to Sydney on the PO ship Beltana that
departed London 10 Mar 1914
All 6 chn were b in Edmonton..............
Would anyone have an idea how they got from Edmonton to London ??
By train to Vancouver > Vancouver via Panama to
Why not Vancouver direct to Sydney ? As the gull flies that's a tad
shorter in distance and in cost !
This is certainly one for the 'leave no stone unturned' rule :-)
Been quite a day finding that info
Beautiful NSW Central Coast
