TheGenealogist adds passenger lists
Details of passengers who sailed to Australia during the 19th century have been added to thegenealogist.co.uk. Comprising more than 190,000 records, the site’s latest release features transcripts of passenger lists, each showing the names of people who arrived in New South Wales between 1828 and 1896. Although the same set can be found on rival sites, TheGenealogist’s collection offers a ‘family group’ tool that can be used to identify kin on board the same ship.
