The arrival of an ancestor in Australia is a key moment in a family's history.

They may have arrived as a fare-paying passenger, as an 'assisted' migrant, a member of a ship's crew, in military or naval service, or as a convict. Your ancestor may have arrived by themselves or with family. Whatever the circumstances of their arrival, the National Library of Australia provides access to shipping-related resources which may help to identify when and how an ancestor first arrived in this country. 

Attend this session to learn more about how the National Library of Australia can help you chart the voyage of generations past.
