An emigrants journey was not easy. Apart from leaving family and friends, it meant months at sea, and conditions on board were not always welcoming. But our emigrant ancestors endured the trip and made a new life for themselves throughout the Australian colonies. Through any number of illnesses, accidents or other ailments sadly not everyone made the entire journey.

This CD is a facsimile of the "return showing deaths occurring on board emigrant ships to South Australia from 1849 to 5 June 1865" which was published in the 'South Australian Government Gazette' of 26 January 1866. Each entry gives:

  • Ship
  • Name
  • Age
  • Cause of Death
  • Where buried
