Hi again,

This is probably a long shot. Does anyone know if the ship log or captain's log book for S.S. Lake Simcoe is available for research? Would that be the place for the ship purser to document any stowaways?

My great great grand father and his son, my great grand father came to Canada from Liverpool on the SS Lake Simcoe ship, arriving in St-John New Brunswick on April 16th 1903.

I would like to know stories or facts about this specific trip ( besides the Rendell letters). I know they broke a speed record but I don't know much more.

What was the name of the captain of the Lake Simcoe ship?
What were the life conditons of the crew?

My ancesters, Alexandre and Noel Warnet, were steerage passengers. They left Liverpool on april 8th 1903 and reached St-John on the 16th.

Thank you very much!
