More on Canadian Pacific Steamship Company Records, 1897-1981.

I am digging further into this unique collection made available by Ancestry from holdings at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology and the Gjenvick-Gjønvik’s GG Archives.

The 213,190 records from 1955 to 1960 are the bulk and most detailed, mainly from westbound passenger lists. For ships leaving from the UK, they should duplicate the outgoing lists, also ending in 1960.

Some sources are printed passenger lists distributed onboard, which become less detailed, just names, in later years.

The remainder are from documents that survive, perhaps of historic interest, or relate to cruises.

Do you know of additional, perhaps printed lists that may have been kept as souvenirs?
