Canadian Steerage Immigrant Inspection Card - 1915

Inspection Card, Steerage Passenger, Immigrant to Canada, SS Missanabie 1915 - Front

Canadian Immigrant Inspection Card issued to a Steerage Passenger on board the Canadian Pacific steamship SS Missanabie departing from Liverpool 13 March 1915. The Missanabie was notable in that it had a very short life, with a maiden voyage on 7 October 1914, the ship of torpedoed and sunk by a German U-Boat on 9 September 1918. This represents a very rare immigrant document from a ship in service less than four years.

The Folks Behind the GG Archives

The GG Archives is the work and passion of two people, Paul Gjenvick, a professional archivist, and Evelyne Gjenvick, a curator. Paul earned a Masters of Archival Studies - a terminal degree from Clayton State University in Georgia, where he studied under renowned archivist Richard Pearce-Moses. Our research into the RMS Laconia and SS Bergensfjord, the ships that brought two members of the Gjønvik family from Norway to the United States in the early 20th century, has helped us design our site for other genealogists. The extent of original materials at the GG Archives can be very beneficial when researching your family's migration from Europe.
