FYI, utilizing microfilms from Library and Archives Canada, I have indexed the following ship manifests containing Molokan passengers who disembarked at Canadian ports en route to the United States:

SS MONTROSE
This Canadian Pacific line steamship departed July 26, 1904, under Captain R.H. McNeill, from the port of Antwerp, Belgium. It carried 171 passengers, including 16 Molokans from Saratov and Kars, Russia. After 12 days at sea, the vessel arrived at the port of Quebec on August 6, 1904. The intended destination of all Molokan passengers is listed as the United States via Winnipeg, Manitoba. Surnames (standardized Russian form) include: Molokanov, Slivkov, Sokhrakov. http://www.doukhobor.org/Molokan-Montrose.pdf

SS SOUTHWARK
This Dominion line steamship departed June 22, 1905, under Captain J.O. Williams, from the port of Liverpool, England. It carried 867 passengers, including 112 Molokans from Kars, Russia. After 10 days at sea, the vessel arrived at the port of Quebec on July 1, 1905. Six Molokans were detained at the Immigration Hospital in Quebec until July 15, 1905 and then deported due to trachoma. The intended destination of all Molokan passengers is listed as the United States via Winnipeg, Manitoba. Surnames (standardized Russian form) include: Bukharev, Dvornin, Fadeev, Fetisov, Kholopov, Kulikov, Metchkov, Mokshanov, Morozov, Novikov, Samarin. http://www.doukhobor.org/Molokan-Southwark.pdf

SS MONTREAL
This Canadian Pacific line steamship departed July 18, 1905, under Captain T.C. Evans, from the port of Antwerp, Belgium. It carried 267 passengers, including 24 Molokans from Kars, Russia. After 12 days at sea, the vessel arrived at the port of Quebec on July 29, 1905. The intended destination of all Molokan passengers is listed as the United States via Winnipeg, Manitoba. Surnames (standardized Russian form) include: Cheremisin, Pluzhnikov, Shubin, Treglazov. http://www.doukhobor.org/Molokan-Montreal.pdf

SS SOUTHWARK
This Dominion line steamship departed August 31, 1905, under Captain J.O. Williams, from the port of Liverpool, England. It carried 649 passengers, including 6 Molokans from Kars, Russia. Also accompanied by 182 Doukhobors from Yakutsk, Siberia. After 10 days at sea, the vessel arrived at the port of Quebec on September 9, 1905. The Molokans were detained at the Immigration Hospital in Quebec for an indeterminate period. The intended destination of the Molokan passengers is listed as the United States via Winnipeg, Manitoba. Surnames (standardized Russian form) include: Metchkov. http://www.doukhobor.org/Molokan-Southwark2.pdf

SS SIBERIAN
This Allan line steamship departed January 26, 1907, under Captain J. Catrill, from the port of Liverpool, England. It carried 341 passengers, including 3 Molokans from Kars, Russia. After 15 days at sea, the vessel arrived at the port of Quebec on February 10, 1907. The intended destination of the Molokan passengers is listed as the United States via Winnipeg, Manitoba. Surnames (standardized Russian form) include: Karetov, Shvetsov, Voronin. http://www.doukhobor.org/Molokan-Siberian.pdf

In addition to the transcribed indices above, images of the original ship passenger lists can be viewed online at the Passenger Lists Database at the Library and Archives Canada website. http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/passenger/001045...

It is hoped these indices will be of assistance to Molokan family researchers. Note that through cross-referencing the above ship passenger list records with the index of border crossing records which I posted earlier, there would appear to be at least two additional ship passenger lists, containing approximately twenty Molokan passengers, which arrived in Canadian ports in 1904-1905. Hopefully these will also be located in the near future.
