    Ancestry.com.au is offering free access to their Australian Immigration records until Monday 21 April. I have already found the arrival of my husband's grandfather from Ireland in 1886:D.

    Thank you for posting this. I have had a happy few hours checking immigration records and learnt a lesson about reading carefully.

    I found what looked like a relative. One of the records had a column titled "Relations in the Colony"

    It said "Sister Margaret's child living at ..." My relative did have a sister Margaret so I was confident this was her. I just did a quick check on my tree to see what I had for Margaret.

    To my surprise she had married a "Hugh Childs"

    I checked the immigration record again. It didn't say "Sister Margaret's child living at ..." it said "Sister Margaret Childs living at ..."
