This significant set of Western Australian historical data, produced by Graham Bown on behalf of the Swan River Pioneers 1829-1838, (a Special Interest Group of the Western Australian Genealogical Society Inc.), has been made available to WAGS members via the WAGS website. 

This is a great resource of early Western Australian data, painstakingly compiled over a number of years from a wide variety of primary and secondary sources.

Anzac Day - April 25, 2009

Poppies  They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
  Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
  At the going down of the sun and in the morning

  We will remember them.

Barque Parmelia

  • PDF

The Barque Parmelia arrived May 31, 1829 to establish the Swan River Colony

Passengers who arrived per the Parmelia made a major contribution to the Swan River Colony, and in turn to the development of Western Australia.

For some of these individuals we now have links to articles in the "Australian Dictionary of Biograhpy", and for others to items in "Wikipedia". 

We encourage you to view our page for the Passenget List of the Parmelia , to discover more about the contribution made by these early settlers.
