Out Bound Ships Leaving USA Data

I did the normal thing for me. I went to Google and asked the question. Here is what I received as an answer.

  1. outbound ships passenger lists sailing from USA and Canada
    Neither U.S. A. nor Canada maintained outbound ships passenger lists. ... transcribeships passenger lists leaving USA, bound for Europe and United Kingdom.

    See I kept saying I did  talk long ago on this and I knew there were sites that could cough up 
    some information.

    1. Ships Passenger Lists from Canada & USA
      ShipsListsOnline is pleased to announce a new project to transcribe ships passenger lists leaving USA, bound for Europe and United Kingdom. Many of these  ...

      mixed bag here but one never knows.

      This is very exciting  to see there are more than two to dig into and hunt around.

      Now I can tell you this page that came up has tons more information but it deals a lot with 
      ships leaving specific Countries.

      Enjoy your hunting.

Mentioning Blogs, Have you tried THEINDEPTHGENEALOGIST.COM


Out in the world of genealogy we have some really neat places to garner information.
This is one I follow and these are the people who control it.

Jennifer Alford, Shannon Combs-Bennett, Terri O'Connell

I chose this blog because it picks up the top ten blog posts that people have really learned and enjoyed from.
I wrote one article for them so long ago I can' t remember the year.

IDG's Top 10 Posts of 2014 - The In-Depth GenealogistThe In-Depth Genealogist

The top posts they found were written by :  Christine Woodcock, Jacky Gamble, Leslie Drwitz,
Terri O'Connell, Shannon Combs-Bennett and Michelle Goodrum.

The topics are of interest to almost all researchers:  Christine W does awesome things with Scottish Research, Terri I have known a very long time.  Suspect they are all well known in their region and I enjoyed their posts.

Enjoy and join if their information is helpful to you.

With so many blogs out there about two years ago I started being more selective.  They are one I have selected.

1. Major struggles to get logged in by many.  Finally mastered I think by all.

2. 14 or 15 in attendance.  Large enough for working with new program.

3.  It has a lot of potential for our members for assistance in asking questions and requesting answers.

4.  Library had a few gliches maybe with internet, I am not techie there.  But presentation was delayed for  about 20 minutes.

5.   I see where we will need this workshop again by March I suspect for more people to learn how to work the system.   Feed back here please. Thanks.

6.   We have an ability to have a photo display area, a research area information, hope to get the forms from old system to new for charts and forms.

7.  Those whom attended if you will let me know if you want to do this again or need more help let us know.  Amazing that even those proficient struggled at times.
