If you can't find what you want among the indexed names, you can give the following inward passenger lists for Sydney a try. The link will let you start in December 1959:

Thank you Sylvia,

the file is quiet large and I cannot download to investigate the file.  Is there a easier way to search.  My father traveled to Sydney Australia in December 1959 and had his baptism in an Anglican Lutheran Church of Finland on 22 December 1959. I am searching for passenger card or manifest for my father and grandfather, both their names are George Petroff.

I'm not sure what the problem is:

1 Dec starts on page 882, 22 Dec starts on page 1088 => i.e that’s only 200 pages!

Thank you Sylvia.

The error message reads: Due to the size of this record the item cannot be generated as a PDF.

Yes, I'd like to have a pdf to page through, but that isn't a possibility in this case. ISo what I do is as follows:

- Click on the image in the link that I had given previously

- wait a while (maybe abt 2-5 minutes due to the size of this item)

- enlarge image

- start paging.

I tried your instructions and waited for more than 4 hours but still no luck with pdf download, file is still too large to download.  Would it be possible for you to download as pdf file and attach it to this blog?

I did not tell you how to download a pdf, but how to look at the online pages...!
