UK outbound passenger lists 1890 – 1960

Australians with ancestors who emigrated from Britain by ship in the twentieth century now have online passenger lists to search via this website. Details of British migrants who sought new lives between 1890 and 1899 are searchable online in a collaboration between Britain’s National Archives and the ancestral records site,

Plans are to extend to 1960 over time.

Lists include pre-World war 1 peak emigration period between 1890 and 1914 when each year an estimated 125,000 people left the British Isles for the US, 50,000 for Canada and 25,000 for Australia.
