Fairsky passenger lists late 1960's
« on: Tuesday 22 February 11 00:08 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Could anybody advise me whether passenger lists are available online for the Fairsky in the late 1960's please.  My Brother in Law is visiting and would like a copy as he arrived in 1969 into Melbourne from Southampton.

Many thanks

Tom

Hi Tom,
Silly question...but is your brother sure it was the Fairsky ? According to this article it was not still in service in the '80's

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairsky

It could be another Fairsky I suppose. I would suggest contacting the Shipping Company that owned the Ship.

thanks for this link Sylvia,
I was one of the 1962 migrants on the Castel Felice - and have great memories of the trip - the story and info will make a great contribution to my family history - for generations to come!  Cheers

Hi Tom,

Try searching the NAA - I can see mention of plenty of assisted immigrants arriving on the Fairsky in 1969.

Thanks to all that provided information and clues.

To Dundee I have checked the site you provided they don't appear to be named there but will check further.
