This collection indexes about 60,000 records of immigrants arriving in Sydney. Beginning in 1828, the Australian Government organized a program to encourage people to migrate to Australia, particularly to the State of New South Wales, which had been founded in 1788. “Assisted Immigrants” were immigrants whose passage was paid for or partially paid for by the Government as an incentive to settle in New South Wales. Another program which ran from 1835 to 1841 was the bounty reward system. “Bounty immigrants” were selected by colonists who then paid for their passage. When the immigrant arrived, the colonist would employ them and the colonist would then be reimbursed by the government for all or part of the cost of passage. The first immigrants to apply for this assisted immigration were the people from Ireland, England, Wales, and Scotland. Later, people from other European countries began immigrating to Australia.

If unable to find your ancestor in the vital records of Australia, you may be able to find the arrival of your ancestor in this index, if their arrival time was between 1828 and 1842. In order to search this index, it is necessary to know the surname of the ancestor, as it is in alphabetical order. Children are often listed separately on a brief handwritten card with no parent’s name as well on the father’s card under “children”. Therefore, if you find a card for a child, you should look for that person listed as a child under the name of a parent in order to identify the child’s parents and siblings.
