All at sea – Using the passenger index for Fremantle — 3 Comments

  1. Thanks Greg for the step-by-step instructions of this useful new index. Are there plans to extend it to earlier arrivals?

    • The quick answer is no, as this is the earliest records the Archives have for arrivals into Fremantle, some holdings in other states are earlier for example – in Brisbane we have the arrival records from 1852 – but they will not be indexed. There has been other organisations that are indexing them and them selling the indexes and also available at the State Library etc.

      Hope that is some help.

  2. I have included your blog in INTERESTING BLOGS in FRIDAY FOSSICKING at

    Thank you, Chris

    This served as a reminder to revisit the Passenger lists… I tend to look for others from the community/areas/places that my ancestors came from.. it’s paid off quite well at times, as I have then found other family who came at different times. I would have had absolutely no idea of the time of their arrival otherwise.
