Passenger lists were created to keep track of everyone on board a ship. There are two well-publicised UK sources for them. The first is a digitised version of the passenger lists for people who departed from the UK between 1890 and 1960. This is series BT27 at The National Archives (TNA), and it’s available via a number of subscription websites including The Genealogist, Findmypast and Ancestry. The second source is BT26 from TNA, which has passenger lists for people arriving in the UK between 1870 and 1960, and this is available on Ancestry.
