Presenter: Bob Thistlethwaite and Chris Schuetz
Many people from Britain and Europe came to South Australia during the 19th century. Many moved on; some to Queensland and also some to the Northern Territory. The Northern Territory was part of South Australia from 1863 to 1911.
Compared to the volume of shipping on the southern clipper route, only a few immigrant vessels came to Queensland via the northern route through the Torres Straits, but many merchant vessels plied regularly between Asian ports and Darwin. These merchant vessels also carried passengers.
If your family members were in South Australia or the Northern Territory, this session will help you to find their records.
