Finding an Airline Passenger Manifest

Herman asked about passenger manifests on airlines

I am trying to find out the airline, flight # or anything at all about our family's immigration to Canada in 1960. We flew from Amsterdam on sept. 22, 1960 and arrived in Montreal on sept. 23, 1960.

We think the airline was KLM but are not sure. If you have any information or leads on how to find this out, I would be very grateful.

Hello Herman - To the best of my knowledge, airline passenger manifests to Canada were not archived (saved) and thus no such manifest exists.

    Sorry - I couldn't figure out how to add a comment without creating a public Google profile.

    What I wanted to add was that when my family immigrated to Canada in 1957, on arrival each family member was issued with a "landed immigrant card" (formal title: "Canadian Immigration Identification Card"). On my card, the stamps provide details of not only the date and place of our arrival, but also the airline, the flight number and point of origin. So if Herman, or other family members, still have their landed immigrant cards, they hopefully will include the airline and flight # details he is after.

    Kind regards,
