Do you have European ancestors?

Come and look at a new resource on our intranet: 
Emigrants from Hamburg to Australasia 1850 – 1879

This database provides an index to 40,857 passengers departing from Hamburg for ports in Australia and New Zealand between 1850 and 1879. 

This is an important resource for family historians with an interest in migration from Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Italy and other European countries through the port of
Hamburg. It was published by the Queensland Family History Society.

It provides information such as name, former place of residence, age, occupation, ship, destination ad departure years.

Les, one of our members has recently donated a German/English dictionary and this will be a great help to the German SIG and other researchers. Thanks Les.

Please note, there is no German Research Special Interest Group in March.
The next meeting will be on Monday 14 April at 1.30pm in the KHS Research Rooms and this new resource will be demonstrated then.
