Re: passenger manifest missing/not indexed/ Australia #general


My greatgrandfather wrote on his application for naturalisation in Australia that he arrived on15th March 1888 on the ship Talavera. This did not seem to be correct. After much searching for dates when the Talavera arrived in Australia in the Australian historical newspapers Shipping News columns (a great source of information via the website of TROVE), I managed to deduce that he actually arrived on the 12th March 1889. But the ship left England on the 27th December 1888 and this is obviously why the mistake was made.
