During my research on the immigration of young people and women into Canada I have come across many other lists of names contained in the Sessional Papers. These papers contain the annual reports of the various federal government departments. Since Canada's papers only start in 1860, some information was taken from the British Parliamentary Papers for the period prior to that date. The Sessional Papers are for the federal government and thus cover all parts of Canada. I hope to add additional pages for the Ontario Sessional Papers as well. As I discover items I will add them to these pages.

Using the sessional papers to do genealogical research can be very time consuming and may not benefit the genealogical researcher in any way. However, if you are using them for a specific purpose it is amazing what you sometimes discover. Since my research has me using these papers a great deal, I have taken to extracting any items of interest.
