Mariners and Ships in Australian Waters


Special offer !!

I am, in some circumstances, willing to scan a particular month in a particular year requested by a visitor to the site which is of special interest to them, in exchange for their transcribing each and every ship in that month to be available online. The scans to be worked on may be downloaded, or emailed and the transcribed spreadsheets returned by email to be processed and made available online.

This exchange cannot be undertaken lightly because of the time and commitment involved by both genies, although it gives the opportunity to search for your person as well as contribute to online records for those who do not have physical access to the reels.

Please be free to drop me a line

Enter your search word/s or year

Don't forget to try all possible variations of spelling the name you are seeking!

If not found then try the variations which would result from a clerk / someone listening to possibly foreign names and writing under difficult conditions - way back in those early years - 1800's!

Every care possible has been taken with these records but, as usual, remember to check original sources of **everything** for yourself. And . . all puns found are intended !!
