This database allows the user to access primary and secondary source data relating
to arrivals from the United Kingdom, parts of Europe and Australia to Wellington
(Wellington only and Wellington as first port of call) between 1839-1897.
There are over one thousand vessel/voyages held within the database. The system
not only includes information about each voyage, including shipping lists.
The database also includes over 600 supplied family history files, containing photographs
of individuals or families that were physically on board the vessel at the time
of arrival in Wellington.
NOTE : Photographs are not included in this version.
The original form of this database was developed in 1990 and has been available
for use by the public at the Petone Settlers Museum since 1994. The system was updated
to allow improved access in 2006 thanks to the support of the New Zealand Lottery
Grants Board and Hutt City Council.
