Hi - I've just found a good new resource for looking up whole passenger
lists of immigrants to NSW. A number of these ships came from Scotland and
specifically brought Argyll, Invenessshire and Mull and other Island
emigrants to the Colony. This is by no means a full list of emigrants
during the period covered but it does allow the ship name to be entered and
all emigrants on the ship to be listed alphabetically. This can be useful
to see listings of the same surnames. You can also do a first name only
search, which might be useful for those with uncommon first names.
Scroll down the various indices listed on that page until you reach the
"new" Index to Miscellaneous Immigrants 1828-43. On clicking on the link
on the page, you are taken to a search box. You can either enter people's
names or alternatively go to the ship box and select one of the ships and
enter that, giving you a list of passengers on the ship.
My family, the Smiths, arrived on the George Ffyfe which left from Mull,
although they were from Ardnamurchan. Further information about the
families can be found in their onshore records following arrival.
Hope this is a useful link.
