  • Queensland's Commonwealth electoral roll databases for 1903, 1913, 1922, 1934, 1949 and 1959, plus indexes to Queensland State electoral rolls 1860-1884, are now on FindMyPast.

  • Index to Emigrants from Hamburg to Australasia 1850-1879 (compiled by Eric and Rosemary Kopittke from Hamburg departure lists) is now on FindMyPast. Hamburg departure lists give information that is not in the passenger lists held in Australia and New Zealand.

  • My article 'The Case of the False Identity', published in Inside History magazine, will have you looking at 19th century passenger lists in a new light.
