Another WA passenger arrivals index has been added to our Members Only Area (MOA). This index covers the period 1873 - 1899 and specifically for arrivals at the port of Albany. WA Passenger Arrivals - Albany 1873-1899 - There are 11,267 line entries in this index, i.e. passengers recorded covering 221 separate vessels.

Some vessels made multiple voyages within individual years, and / or over the period covered; there are 886 voyages for the vessels in the table.

Some passengers may appear more than once, either on the same ship voyage, or on separate voyages of the same ship. There are entries for; Stowaways; Ships Crew (whilst generally noted as such they may appear without a notation as being crew); Crew of other ships travelling to and from their own vessel; Convicts; recruits for the Midland Railway Company; through Passengers, ie. they did not land at Albany, and were bound for other Ports; Overseas, Interstate and WA Coastal Passengers.

Passenges showing at any given port may or may not have in fact disembarked at that port. Some passengers broke their journey in Albany and continued on to their final destination on another vessel at a later date. In many cases passengers disembarked in Albany and then travelled overland to their final destination in Western Australia, even though they may be showing as disembarking at another Western Australian Port.
