I have a photocopy of an ancestry passenger list for a Samuel Chiddicks arrival date 21st July 1852 his birth 1827.
Port of departure Liverpool, arrival port New York
ships name St.George
microfilm serial M237
roll 116
list number 995

Now frustratingly i cannot locate this on ancestry, is it likely ot have been removed or am i just not looking in the right place??

Can anybody have a quick look to see if its there for me.

thanks again

Hi,
Yes I get it no bother.
Have you made a spelling error on the search as that could cause a problem?

although its a fairly uncommon name, for a change, the copy i have is actually spelt as chiddicks

I have world membership of ancestry.
Yes it is an unusual name - which is always a help on a search.
There are only 2 listed for births and deaths and 2 entries for the census.

Just to add that there are 2 births of Chiddicks (I didn't put in a 1st name) on Scotlands people.

Paul - Which Ancestry package do you have? UK Essentials, UK Premium or Worldwide? The Ancestry Library edition that your photocopy came from is the same as the Worldwide and those two are the only way that you'll get the New York Passenger Lists.
I have Premium and when I put Samuel's name in the search it comes up as being in the Database but I'm unable to access the details - is this what you're getting?

Hi Paul,
Here is how I got my result.
On the HOME page I simlpy entered the name, with "historical records" highlighted on the tab above - Samuel Chiddicks - then clicked on search, didn't enter anything else as it is an unusual name so normally best not to narrow things down too early.
Then I got the results with 2 census results a birth, death and a passenger list.
Let me know how you get on.

Just to add that make sure the little box - bottom left - isn't ticked for UK results only.
I have just tried that and you get the other results but it misses out the passenger list - perhaps that is your problem.
