Passenger lists for Athenia July 4th 1933 or August 1933?
March 08, 2009
Could you please help me Mac,
As a small child I sailed on the Athenia from Canada, I think maybe from Montreal. We had been living in Toronto, Our journey was either July 4th 1933 or August 1933. I have been trying to find a passenger list to confirm dates because I am writing my story for my Grandson and would like to get accurate information. There are several dates of travel I am seeking for other journeys but find it very difficult to get passenger lists. I would be most grateful if you could help me. Thank you in anticipation.
sincerely, Davina Curtis.
The problem with the BT 26 records at the PRO Kew is that you cannot access them on line via the internet.
One needs to physically go to Kew and not get much assistance.
Here is a note saying that Canada did not keep records of those leaving the country, that I find quite bizarre.
The Government of Canada did not keep records of people leaving the country; there are no passenger lists for departures from Canadian ports.
Regret I am not of much use in your quest.
