On the Record Search page in National Archives Austrlia i discovered if you just put in a surname only it pulls up everything relative,noticed there are immigration records in the 60's,includes spouse with maiden names + children,also tells you when they left & how,incl names of ships,there are all sorts of interesting bits on there,unfortunately it is only 10% of records,i checked a known immigration & it is not there,also found you can search passengers 1926-38 + a list of ships which i assume is same period.Hope this helps. John.
