Historical arrivals, births, marriages & deaths
1836 to 1856
Early settler arrivals, births, marriages, deaths & burials in SA
Family Group Sheet-like search results
The families with the entered surname will be listed together under each principal male's arrival information (including any wife and children accompanying him). If unmarried, this may be followed by his marriage. Then, any children born in South Australia will be shown in birthdate order. Finally, his death will be given if it occurred within the period covered by the database.
This grouping of results should enable you to better visualize the family you're researching and therefore make it easier to construct this branch of your family tree.
However, you will need to check for any deaths of his wife and children that will be listed alphabetically under their own names.
In the case of arrivals of single men or women with identical full names, there is no way to determine which families they belong to except by taking into account their arrival dates. Sometimes this is not sufficient information.
There is also the potential for another problem although not a single instance has yet been found. If there was a case where two husbands had identical full names and their wives also had exactly the same names then their search results would be intermixed, possibly causing confusion. They may be separable utilising event dates and locations.
A few families have not yet been processed to eliminate spelling errors and inconsistencies in the original source documents. Because the listing order may be disrupted, you should scan the search results above and below your family to find any related out-of-order entries. Please advise Barry of any errors at email@example.com, giving the sources of your information so that he can verify your claims and update the data.
