Hello everyone!

I'm doing research on my great grandfather who came to Australia with his brother 'round 1870 during/after the Prussian wars.

I'd like to know where to strart to find ship manifests from 1865 to 1880.

All help will be appreciated.

Re the female Sprenger immigration:

I found the following 4 family members in an emigrant database:

Nachname

Vorname

Alter Person

Geburtsdatum

Herkunft

Ziel

Jahr

Mueller geb Sprenger

Justine Wilhelmine

31

1840

Hedwigshof/Prenzlau

Australien

1871

Mueller

Karl Friedrich Wilhelm

29

1842

Hedwigshof/Prenzlau

Australien

1871

Mueller

Karl Friedrich Wilhelm

4

1867

Hedwigshof/Prenzlau

Australien

1871

Mueller

Friederike Wilhelmine Ernestine

2

1869

Hedwigshof/Prenzlau

Australien

1871


This family left Germany in May 1871 and arrived at Keppel Bay abt 4 months later on the “Lammershagen”. They would have more children in Australia under the surname Muller. Mother’s name seems to be a version of Justine e.g. Auguste/Augustine

So for quite some time I was convinced that this was Gottfried’s sister Justine born 1837 and that C/Karl Friedrich Wilhelm Mueller would have been a second husband. Howver, eventually I found the Sprenger/Mueller marriage and realized that this was another Justine … I assume a possible cousin …
See: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J7KF-1C9

PS Christian Sprenger (father of this Justine b abt 1840) might have been a witness/godfather at Johan's daughter Justine's 1837 baptism (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-6XP9-6HT?i=138)

Many thanks again, Sylvia.

I'll digest all this precious info during the coming week and let you know how I fit all this

on my family tree.

Talk to you soon.

Rgds,

Roy

Hello Sylvia,

Still  putting together the Sprenger tree, .... lots of branches!

I may have to contact Aussie archives to get more dates.

I've gone through my personal papers/data and lots of things are starting to match.

Regards,

Roy

Hello Sylvia,

I've spent some ime putting all the pieces together.

There are so many children! Some deceased at birth no doubt but large families were

run of the mill in the 19th century.

I got back to my great, great grandfather Johann Salomon SPRENGER who married Dorothée Louise Parchart

and that's where the tree stops! There are no other records on Familysearch to go back to the 18th century.

Any suggestions, advice would be appreciated.

Regards

Roy
