Bound for South Australia

Portal page for projects related to immigration to South Australia. Here is a video to get you in the mood: Bound For South Australia

South Australia was an unusual settlement within the British Empire. Unlike the older colonies on Australia’s eastern seaboard there were to be no convicts, and this commitment to a ‘free’ settlement was fiercely maintained.

NB: It may take time to get these projects created, if you have profiles ready to add to a voyage and the project does not exist, please message Proctor (Duthy) to have it created for you. If you feel confident to create it yourself, please request to collaborate. Projects have a set format at this stage, and naming can be copied from existing projects. The list should also be updated and the project added to HistoryLink once it contains some profiles. Thanks :).
