Finding an ancestor’s arrival in Australia can be difficult, but there is an increasing number of ways to track them.

The National Archives of Australia, Queensland State Archives and State Library of Queensland, together, hold the major Australian shipping records for the 19th and 20th centuries.

This is an opportunity to hear staff from all these repositories discuss their records and how to use them effectively.
