Hit Counter

268 Persons arrived on board this Ship in Sydney Australia on 15th December 1853 

I am particularly interested at the moment in the approx  59 Single Females.  Who did they marry, where did the settle, did they have family already in the colony, where were they born and old were they when they died.

I will be transcribing the single females from the passenger list only.  (not yet started).

Also if you have a web page or email address for any of the passengers on board the Athenian - please let me know and I will add a link from the surname to your page. This way people can contact you directly.
