Christina is also a "Domestic", travelling on the same Ticket 1696; but otherwise, no extra information on the IMAGE of the Ship's Manifest.


Try to find the Canadian Arrivals List, as it may mention Frank.


There is a FRank Baird born in Angus (Forfarshire) inclusibve of Dundee in 1887.

If you go to Scotland's People, you will be able to VIEW the Scanned IMAGE of his Birth Record; and of the two girls.

Those will normally have the names of the Parents, Date and general location of their Marriage and the name of the Informant, who is frequently the maternal Grandmother of the Birth child, so giving a lead to earlier generations.

The only way to find out exactly what is on those Birth Records is to VIEW them.

Similarly for Frank's later Marriage etc.
