This publication contains nearly 60,000 records of immigrants arriving in New South Wales from 1828 to 1842. To compile this database, 64 reels of microfilm # 1286-1349 from State Records (NSW) were used.

Fields used in the database are: Surname, Given name; Age in years; Year; Ship; Native place; Occupation; Religion; Notes; Reel.

Using the Digger software, which is suitable for Windows, Macintosh or DOS, you are given an immense flexibility in searching on any particular or combination of fields on database. It is quick, easy and allow very detailed search criteria to be used. Some of the features of Digger software that you will especially appreciate are:

  • speed - these software packages are optimised for searching large databases on CD-ROM;
  • ease of use - just enter the information you are looking for, or choose from a list of all the values in the database;
  • fielded database searches - you don't need to memorise the names of the fields in the database;
  • advanced searches can be undertaken using Boolean or proximity searching;
  • a list of all entries or words in a field can be viewed and selected into the search screen;
  • truncation searches: ie Hall* retrieves Halls, Halloran, Haller etc;
  • reverse truncation searches: ie *Donnell retrieves Donnell, O'Donnell, MacDonnell etc;
  • wild card searches: ie Je*cott retrieves Jephcott, Jefcott and Jeffcott (great for finding those spelling mistakes!);
  • 'like' (phonetic) searches: ie 'like' Myer locates Mier, Meyer etc;
  • results can be viewed in list or single record formats;
  • in list format the data can be sorted by any field;
  • printing and exporting in list or label format;
  • exporting in formats compatible with word processing and database software; and
