Article: Historic passenger lists go online

Quoting the article:
People looking to track ancestors who emigrated from British ports will from Wednesday be able to search online passenger lists of the ships that carried them to new lands.

Released by Britain's National Archives, the passenger manifests give an insight into all long-distance trips made by 30 million travelers from the country's ports between 1890 and 1960, including that of the Titanic which sank in 1912.

The digitized records are available at, which is a commercial web site. Registration is free, but to view the full records costs.
