Index to vessels arriving in Sydney 1837-1925

The latest additions to the online indexes at State Records NSW include one to the vessels arriving in Sydney 1837-1925. Note that the index relates to vessels arriving in Sydney only, not to the whole of NSW. It is an index to ships - not the people on board.

It records the name and type of vessel, and date of arrival. If you know the name of the ship, this index will be useful to check or confirm the date of arrival.

There are over 120,000 entries in this index, which is the work of
Mary-Anne Warner and her team of volunteers. This new online index can be searched at : > www.records.nsw.gov.au/archives/index_~1.asp.
