My wifes ancestors left Louth and Armagh[info provided in early Scottish census]and apparently found each other and married in Blantyre,Scotland.I can only surmise that the move was influenced by the famine based on the ages etc of both of them when they married.They must have travelled by ship and my first presumption would be from Dublin to Glasgow.So,my question is "Would there be any shipping records listing passengers etc from the 1840's which can be referred to".Also,can anyone let me know if there were other departure ports along the eastern Irish seaboard.
If anyone can help me source this information I would be extremely grateful.As I do not live in the UK , I am unable to visit any Irish/UK archives and search as I may, I cannot seem to get any factual information.
