Passenger Lists

Official lists of passengers arriving in South Australia from overseas 1888 -1924

This series contains official passenger lists of ships arriving in Port Adelaide from overseas, from 1888-1940. The Customs Department required masters of incoming ships to prepare and forward passenger lists to the Department. 

Information recorded on passenger lists varies but generally include ship's name, master's name, tonnage, where bound, ports of embarkation and disembarkation, names of passengers, age (adult or child), occupation, nationality and number of passengers. Lists may contain names of passengers disembarking at Australian ports other than Adelaide. Not all lists have survived.
