Passenger’s Database

Passengers in History brings together two wonderful resources:

A passengers data base developed by the SA Maritime Museum,

A list of ships’ logs and diaries, titled Log of Logs.

The passengers data base was produced by staff and volunteers at the South Australian Maritime Museum over 20 years. It includes entries for 328,000 passengers and 20,000 voyages to South Australia between 1836 and 1964.
