Ancestry.ca updates passenger lists

It's good to see updates and corrections being made to existing databases. Some improvements go on routinely, I know as from time to time I get a note about corrections I suggest having been implemented. In this case Ancestry.ca has done something a bit more:

1) updated the browse so that it includes vessel name - and correct several vessel names in the process. Also many of the cover\title pages for ships were not being displayed if they did not include passenger names. These images are now available, very helpful when you are trying to verify that information.

2) made corrections where there was confusion of St John, New Brunswick vs St John's, Newfoundland.

The above information is thanks to Ancestry consultant Leslie Anderson. She also mentions that the form 30As for 1919 to 1924 ocean arrivals are now scheduled for the Fall. Hopefully that's the early Fall!
