    New Australian immigration records online

    Well, not sure how how much is actually new, because a lot of the information was already available for free on the NSW State Records site.

    New South Wales, Australia, Assisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1828-1896
    New South Wales, Australia, Unassisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1826-1922

    Seems to be a bit more, or it's just better organised.

    A lot of interstate travel. My Ariels like to travel and they are there flitting backwards and forwards.

    A few Inmans too, Mary, but I haven't had time to have a good look yet.

    I've already had a look but there don't seem to be any of my Inmans.

    Two went to Queensland, and I have them from another list. Some went to WA, so they won't be on these lists.

    I have found one of my Chandlers (Andrew), who's listed under two names for some reason. I already had most of the others, but there are about 4 still missing.

    I'd just spotted it on Ancestry too. There are definitely some of mine on there.

    Just as an indication of the quality of transcription, "Port of Departure: Busbane"!

    The first person I'm looking up appears as H B Bristoe, H B Briston, and H B Bristow (so far). So, typical kind of ancestry transcriptions really.

    But, there are some mistranscriptions on the NSW Mariners and Ships site too - for instance, I've found him on there as H W Bristow and F B Bristow, so it's worth searching both sites.

    He was on XFM in London too - a station devote dto indie music and alternative rock!!

    Very weird choice for ancestry in my opinion.

    The presenter had him singing the theme tune to his old kids programme Maid Marian And Her Merry Men. And telling stories of falling drunkenly into the holes dug on Time Team.
