Maritime Records and Research Centre
Records of the Sydney Heritage Fleet's collections are maintained by the Fleet's Maritime Records and Research Centre.
The collections include a range of items, which have been assembled over a period of forty years. The collections continue to grow, mainly as a result of items of maritime interest being donated by committed individuals.
The Centre is staffed entirely by Fleet volunteers and is able to respond to a wide range of enquiries and search requests from individuals and organisations. This service is based on material held in the Centre which generally relates to Australian subjects with particular emphasis on New South Wales and Sydney. It includes:
The Centre maintains a database containing records and descriptions of all items in the Fleet's collections. Additional records cover the maritime history of Australia from the early days of colonisation up to modern times. The historical records include:
- Australian Ship illustration Index
- Marine Personalities Index
- Maritime Subjects Index
- Museums Index
- Ships and Other Vessels Index A to E
- Ships and Other Vessels Index F to K
- Ships and Other Vessels Index L to R
- Ships and Other Vessels Index S to Z
Whilst information can be provided in support of persons conducting genealogical research, the Centre is unable to assist with primary genealogical research. The Centre does not hold passenger lists or crew lists. In special circumstances the archives can be made available to individuals for research purposes. Details of fees are available on request.
The Maritime Records and Research Centre is located at Wharf 7, Pirrama Road, Pyrmont, is open from Monday to Friday except for public holidays, and may be visited by prior appointment.
