Return of Emigrants Landed at the Port of Kingston Ontario, Canada 1861-1882

Just want to let you know that I have the start of a new database online. It is a Return of Emigrants Landed at the Port of Kingston Ontario, Canada 1861-1882

The column headings for each individual are Date of Landing; Name of Emigrant or Head of Family; From what Country; Via what Seaport Town; Destination; Condition,
general appearnace, health; No. of male adults; No. of Female adults; No. under 6 years; No. over 6 years and under 12; in what Township Employed as Servants; In what Township settled, or bought land; Amount of passage tickets issued; Amount of provisions; Amount of Medical aid; amount of Capital brought by them; General Remarks.

The ledger pages these names were taken from consists of two pages facing each other containing information provided for each individual recorded. I have only extracted partial information from the left side of the facing ledger pages. There is still much detail on each individual to be found on the facing (right) side pages and in comments inserted on both sides.
