If you have pioneer ancestors who might have already arrived in South Australia by 1860, search on their family surname to find any matches. Don't be misled by the apparent simplicity of this search form. It is both easy to use and powerful. The three individual component databases,
Unregistered births and marriages, mostly from church baptism and marriage records, are included.
The individual components of this combined database give more information on sources and acknowledgments.
Many of the spelling errors and inconsistencies in the original source documents have been corrected in our records. Any that remain may give useful but out-of-order search results. If you discover any of these errors, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can amend our data where necessary.
If you are unable to find a particular pioneer's arrival, see our directory of SA shipping & migration resources to help locate another source.
