Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

Bremen barque Wilhelmine, 300 tons, Captain Kimme, from Bremen 6th June 1855, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 1st October 1855

An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 110 German migrants should have been on the Wilhelmine, I have been able to find 109 as listed below. — Regards Robert.

note.— There are very few surviving original lists of German passengers, so the data below has been compiled from a variety of sources, such as contemporary newspaper(s), internet sources, input from descendants and the South Australian Heraldry Genealogy society, (SAGHS).
I know the list is incomplete and may contain errors, so any feedback with additions or corrections, will be most appreciated. Please contact me using the link above. Regards Robert, Adelaide
