Each link will take you to a page that shows transcribed passenger list data from the State Records Authority of New South Wales. Click on the red SCAN button to view a digitized copy of the original passenger list.

All of the data that went into this index was transcribed by volunteers, from handwritten forms that has since been microfilmed. As a result, many errors have to have crept in. However, given the amount of metadata that I compiled, I was able to make nearly 2500 corrections to vessel names. The name that was transcribed and typed in has been preserved in a parenthetical note, but corrected names will make it easier to locate ships.
