Just a note for veiwers ..... I am NOT in anyway associated nor do I transcribe passenger lists for Rootsweb's Transcirbers Guild NOR Olive Tree. I transcribe for my Own benefit and the benefit of others. The other People that have posted here, are not in anyway associated (as far as I know) with Olive Tree or Transcribers Guild either. I hold my own Copyrights to my own Transcriptions. I do not hold copyright to donations of others on my page, they hold thier own Copyrights on thier own transcriptions. Thank you for visiting my pages.

Would you please give any credit to
Ted Chapple, as he has done the research
and I have a copy of his book, being a
Chapple descendant. I hope this will
be useful to you.
