Emigration no escape from genealogists

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Ten Pound Poms, and other emigres, can now be traced via a genealogy site which has got access to passenger name lists from ships leaving the UK between 1890 and 1960.

The early version of Passenger Name Records covers 24 million people. The entries include passenger names, ages, departure and destination ports as well as UK address, year of birth, marital status, occupation and nationality.

The period covered includes mass emigration to Australia - the Ten Pound Pom scheme subsidised by the Australian government. This saw 710,000 Brits leave for a new life down under.

The information is from the National Archives and is available on GenesReunited, the site owned by Beano spin-off Brightsolid, which also owns proto-social networking FriendsReunited.

GenesReunited launched in 2003 claims 11 million members and 750 million individual entries. You'll need to register to view the information. ®
