description The popularity of the aggregate passenger lists published in previous numbers of The Island Magazine has prompted the continuation of the series in the following pages. In this installment, the period 1842- 1847 is covered. The Unregulated Passage All too early in the quest for ship passenger lists, Island genealogists have faced the frustration of a lack of records documenting the arrival of their forbears in the New World. The scarcity of records is easily explained when one considers that, until the late 19th century, what is now Canada had a "Free Entry" policy with respect to immigration. Thus, the Island government did not require records of passengers at the point of entry.
