Belgian - arrivals in South Australia

Belgian - arrivals in South Australia - Index

Many families and some single persons arrived in South Australia, a free settlers State in the 1850's to 1880's.

In working with these records it has been noticed that many did not stay in South Australia.

They may have gone directly to the Goldfields, many appear in Victoria Australia and Queensland. This project will list these persons and profiles may be added to it, the main purpose being to trace when they arrived, how old they were and where they may have settled.

NB. They lived in Belgium when they emigrated, but possibly may not all have been born there.

See ships lists for details and stories of the voyage... they provide, age, occupation (add to occupations projects here), deaths on board, births and a number like "148/3" which refers to the Genealogy SA searchable database. If they have a number, it is more likely they either married, gave birth to a child or remained in South Australia.
