Archives Office of Tasmania: People who were convicts in Tasmania were not permitted to marry either each other or free people without approval from the Convict Department authorities. The index contains entries for most (but not all) people during the period 1829 to 1857. The actual applications have not survived and registers (CON45, CON52) have been the source for this index. These registers have a two-line entry for each application. The information listed is: applicant's surname and given name; an extra identifier (if two convicts arrived on the same ship and had the same name); the name of the ship the convict arrived on, or 'free' if the person was not a convict; the date of the application; the reference number for the application; the reference number for the marriage record if this has been included.
State Records Authority of New South Wales: An index to NSW Convict Tickets of Leave. A Ticket of Leave was evidence that a convict was allowed to work outside the assignment system. Each butt gives the following information: prisoner's number, name, ship arrived on, master of ship, year of arrival, native place, trade or calling, offence, place of trial, date of trial, sentence, year of birth, complexion, height, colour of hair, colour of eyes, general remarks, the district prisoner is allocated to, the Bench who recommended him, and the date of issue of ticket. There are also notes of change of district, conditional pardons, etc. on most of the butts. The index contains references to the Ticket of Leave Butts 1827 - 1867 (SR Reels AO 909-65, 2688A) available in the Newspapers and Family History zone of the Main Reading Room, Microfilm Drawer 'New South Wales 5", mfm N 229.
Archives Office of Tasmania: Records of people departing were not routinely or comprehensively kept at Tasmanian ports, although for some periods, such as the 1850s, the records are fairly complete. This index covers most available records before 1860 and some beyond that date, and it is being added to gradually. Generally these records are 'one line' register entries which are fully transcribed into this index. Copies of the passenger record may be obtained from the Archives Office of Tasmania.
Darling Downs Family History Society: Contains 39,447 entries compiled from microfilm in the Queensland State Archives Kit. ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE JUKE BOX PC IN THE NEWSPAPERS AND FAMILY HISTORY ZONE OF THE MAIN READING ROOM.
Netherlands National Archives: This is an index to Dutch emigration cards. From 1946 onwards the Dutch consulates in Australia kept detailed records of Dutch emigrants or 'new Australians' of Dutch origin. The emigration cards show how the consulates helped the migrants to establish themselves in their new home country. Thus each card provides an insight into individual personal histories - sometimes just a sketch, sometimes in considerable detail. The index entry shows date of birth and arrival date into Australia and sometimes ship's name.
State Records Authority of New South Wales: This index includes the names of passengers who paid their own fare, as well as assisted immigrants. Information includes: name, ship, date of arrival, age, events (e.g. shipwreck), and the series, item and microform numbers. It is not a complete index to immigration for the period. Other indexes for assisted and unassisted immigrants in eResources should also be consulted. Only some source material for this index is held by the National Library.
Archives Office of Tasmania: The Archives Office holds records relating to the application by non - British subjects for certificates of denization and naturalisation for the period 1835 - 1905. The applications are in the files of the Colonial, later Chief, Secretary's Departments and the Oaths of Allegiance and copies of certificates are among the records of the Supreme Court. The first act enabling the Lieutenant Governor to grant letters of denization was passed in 1835. This legislation was repealed in 1861 by the Aliens Act. The records cease when the function is transferred to the Commonwealth Government
Public Record Office Victoria: This database is a searchable list of passengers travelling on ships leaving Victoria. The material indexed is the microfilm copy of the list at the Victorian Public Record Office, Melbourne, catalogued at VPRS 3506 and available in their reading room. The microfilm is currently not available at the National Library of Australia.
National Archives of Australia: An online database that includes the names from passenger lists in the National Archives series K269, Inward passenger manifests for ships and aircraft arriving at Fremantle, Perth Airport and outports, chronological series, 1898-1978. The index is useful to those undertaking family history research because many ships bound for the eastern Australian states passed through Fremantle. The Fremantle passenger lists include all those passengers who disembarked in Fremantle and they often also include all other passengers who travelled further on the same ship and disembarked in other Australian or overseas ports. NOTE: Although the original index at the National Archives coveres 1898-1978, coverage as of March 2014 is 1921-1949 only; the National Archives website will provide further information if the coverage is updated.
Archives Office of Tasmania: This comprehensive index of all convicts transported to Tasmania and those who were convicted (through the convict system) in the colony was created by indexing all original records held by the Archives of Tasmania from the beginning of transportation in 1804 until 1853 when transportation ceased. The latest entry in the database for the locally convicted convicts is 1893. About 76,000 people are indexed. The index contains links to digitised convict records.
