Family History WA
Family History WA formerly known as The Western Australian genealogical Society, has a number of databases that are publically available. However the most useful information is available only to members of the society. FHWA has transcribed most of the shipping records for Western Australia.. The passenger arrivals index for 1898-1926 listed the nationality of the passengers. I have taken abstracts of data for passengers from the Austro-Hungarian empire. Most of the passengers that arrived from Austro-Hungary in this period, were from the Dalmatian coast (Serbia/Croatia) The surnames are mostly of Serbian or German origin. There are very few traditionally Hungarian names. The list also has a lot of spelling or transcription errors for the Central/East European surnames. If you would like to check if your family name appears on the list, please contact me via the Contributions page.
