Several passenger diaries exist in libraries and personal collections across the world. We are fortunate to have access to some of them. Sections from them are reproduced on this site.
If your ancestor travelled aboard the City of Adelaide and kept a diary that we don't know about, we would love to hear from you.
Diary transcripts we currently have transcribed are:
- Sarah Ann Bray
- Frederick William Bullock
- James Anderson McLauchlan
- Melville Miller
- James Moorehouse
Also provided is an account of the Nancarrow family's migration. This depiction also paints a picture of the life of a Cornish family, faced with economic hardship in the UK, migrating to work in the Moonta copper mines in South Australia.
