The eGGSA Passenger List Project
Immigration Records in the
Pietermaritzburg Archives Repository.
The Natal Immigration Board's Registers of immigrants 1850 to 1911 have now been transcribed and the data is available to search. We will continue to add to the data as we proceed with the transcriptions. Each record found carries a full reference to the original.
Shipping records photographed and transcribed during phase 1 of our project:
Pietermaritzburg Archives Repository (NAB), Natal Immigration Board registers
Volume 64 Register of Immigrants Arrived 1849-1852 (in fact only 1850 to 1852 now in this volume)
Volume 65 Register of Immigrants Arrived 1858-1874
Volume 66 Register of Immigrants Arrived 1874-1886
Volume 67 Register of Immigrants Arrived 1887-1902
Volume 69 Register of Immigrants Arrived 1903-1904
Volume 63 Register of Immigrants Arrived 1905-1911
(Vol 63 is described in the NAB Inventory as 'Register of Applications for Assisted Passages 1905-1911' but is, in fact, the continuation of the series of 'Registers of Immigrants Arrived')
There are other records in this series, including the Habourmaster's Registers which we hope to transcribe in the future, as also Immigration Board minutes and corrrespondence, but we are transcribing only the passenger lists.
