Scott Bird's Family Tree

Maryborough, (QLD)

Last updated : Nov 24, 2009

The Port of Maryborough, Queensland Australia is an important port for immigration of people from the British Isles, Denmark, and Germany. Declared a 'port of entry' in 1859 (shortly after Queensland had separated from the colony of New South Wales) it was the first regional port in Eastern Australia to serve as an immigration port for free settlers.

Information on immigrants arriving at this port may be available from Queensland State Archives or local family history centres and libraries.

NB : I'd love to find out more about these people, particularly those from the last 200-300 years.

If you can help flesh out their stories, please get in touch via my personal site, at / contact . Thank-you.
