I'm in Adelaide, capital of South Australia and for about 10 years now I have been doing FREE research for anyone around the world who wants information from our Family History Records about ancestors/family who came to Adelaide in the 1800's.

I have access to passenger lists of people arriving here on ships from overseas. The passenger lists are photocopies of the original passenger lists, so you can be assured the information on the passenger lists is genuine, not made up.

Our marriage records go from 1842-1937, but our deaths records only go from 1842-1916. However, they are in the process of being updated. Our birth records go from 1842-1928, with some earlier ones in the 1830's (but not many of those) South Australia was only proclaimed a colony in 1836.

If you would like me to do some searching for you, feel free to get back to me, preferably on my email address, and I'll see what I can find for you. I go to the State Library one day a week, usually Fridays, and I can usually send information I find back to the person making the request within 7-10 days, often earlier.

All you need to do is send me the names of people who came here. If you are not sure what ship they came on, it doesn't really matter as I can look them up on the passenger lists.

This is not a hoax. It is a genuine offer. I admit to being a genealogy addict, but just love the search and the sense of achivements.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

in Adelaide, South Australia.
