Galway Emigrant Index 1828-1866 (freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~maddenps/GALWAYEM.htm)
is a database transcribed by Peter Madden: Immigration from Galway to Australia, New South Wales & Queensland. This index of Immigrants to NSW from Galway 1828 – 1866 was compiled by Peter Madden, Newcastle, Australia, by attempting to read the original shipping documents as filmed. After 1866, it seems that most shipping documents were lost or destroyed, so the index will finish there.”
Galway Emigrants-Family Links & Biographies (http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~maddenps/GALWAYBIOS.htm) is a companion transcription by Peter Madden. “These links come from applications made by convicts to have their spouse & family reunited with them, here in Australia. The information comes from a book called “Convict Applications to Bring out Families” by Coralie Mesecke, published by the Hobart Branch of Tasmanian Family History Society, 2001. Copies of relevant documents can be obtained by writing to them.”
