Another decade added to the UK outbound Passenger Lists 1920-1929

A boon to Genealogists and family history buffs. Findmypast.com has added another decade of passenger records to the UK Outbound Passenger Lists which are available for searching right now. Records have been expanded to include an incredible 15,749,960 names with over 97,614 passenger lists spanning the period from 1890 to 1929, which increases the chances of finding that well-travelled relative who didn’t show up on a census!

There’s more useful information available on the original images than on records from previous decades, items such as each passenger’s last address in the UK, which makes it easier than ever to fill in the gaps in your genealogical or historical research.

The 1920s – full of bright young things and abdicating kings

In the 1920’s people were beginning to travel not only out of necessity, but for travels sake. People were still emigrating and travelling on business but they were now also able to visit their family overseas, enjoy entertaining cruises to exotic locations and participate in international sporting events. When immigration to the USA began to fall off after 1922 as the United States started to close its borders, there was a expansion in the number of people seeking to make Canada and, increasingly, Australia and New Zealand their new home.

Family history researchers may be able to find gems of information in these newly available records that will possibly fill in one more piece of the jigsaw or maybe make that important breakthrough.
