Passenger records held in Hobart – Fact sheet 184
Passenger records provide a valuable source of information for family historians. The Archives office in Hobart holds inward and outward passenger lists for the port of Hobart and some lists, cards and related registers for Tasmanian ports of Burnie, Devonport and Launceston. These records are usually arranged by the date, name of the ship, and the port of arrival or departure. Unless you know these details your search may be very time-consuming.
