General Files

 

A feature of the research centre is thousands of alphabetically organized files that have been compiled over a period of some forty years by the centre’s volunteers to aid research in response to public inquiries. These cover individual ships, shipping companies, personalities and a comprehensive range of nautical/maritime subjects.

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:

•    Marine Personalities Index
