Hi, thanks for the offer. Could you possibly check for the following: I have a family from Wicklow in Ireland. It was a Peter and Elizabeth Murray, they had a least 2-3 children with them on the crossing. Destination was Australia - I think Melbourne. I have not had any luck with how they went to Australia.

Hi Linda Thanks for looking Jelly

Good Morning Gina, Sorry no Arthur Vigus. Looked at other destanations and dates. The lists only go to 1919 at the moment but are being extended, I think, later this year. He must have gone after that. Linda

Hi Linda, I am trying to find May Jones b. Dec. 1890. In the 1901 census the family were in Perth, Scotland. She marrried ( 1914 ) in Victoria, BC. Canada. I have found her sister Naomi b. 1899 and brother Richard b. 1903 in Canada, but not sure if they travelled with her, their mother is Cecilia Jones b.1865. Thanks for trying, OC&G

Hi OC&G Found this for a Cecelia Jones right age and right area. Wondered if she followed after her husband died??? or something like that. Still looking for the children Name: Cecilia JONES Date of departure: 6 October 1927 Port of departure: Liverpool Passenger destination port: Montreal, Canada Passenger destination: Montreal, Canada Age: 63 Marital Status: Sex: Female Occupation: None Passenger recorded on: Page 19 of 28 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The following people with the same last name travelled on this voyage: - Catherine JONES Page 15 of 28 View transcript John JONES Page 20 of 28 View transcript John JONES Page 18 of 28 View transcript This doesn't mean they travelled together just that those people with the same surname were on board at the same time. It does help when you have an unusual surname..

Hi Linda, I'm looking for the following people, all of whom emigrated to Australia: Amelia Inman b. 1838, widow, emigrated between 1881 and 1892 possibly her brother Alfred Chandler b. 1833 (not sure if he emigrated: can't find him after 1881, but I can't see him on Australian indexes either) her brother Andrew Chandler b. 1835 (emigrated between 1851 and 1886) and her children: Andrew Inman b. 1867, emigrated between 1881 and 1892 Ada Eliza Inman b. 1874, emigrated between 1881 and 1901 George Alfred Inman b. 1878, emigrated between 1881 and 1916 Not sure if they travelled together or separately. They all ended up in NSW except Ada and George, who settled in Western Australia. Several of Amelia's other siblings and children emigrated to NSW, but I've found all of them on passenger lists. Thanks a lot, Mary
