In 1957 my mother went back to England to re-unite with family. 

She left Fremantle on a Swedish Cargo Ship which carried 12 passengers, sometime between March & May and returned later in the same year. 

I can not find any records and would like to know how I go about finding such records.

Hi Kay,

You need to look at the arrivals into the UK as you won't find any indexed departures from Australia. These can be searched on Ancestry.com but are not complete.  You can also search search the indexed departures from the UK for her return voyage. I can have a look for you if you can post her name.

Cheers,

Debra

Hi Debra,

I think I replied to your email, it is just that I got a new computer, and I have lost a lot info, so if you replied back, I can not find it.

Regards

Kay

Hi Kay,

The NAA are currently digitising and indexing passenger records into WA 1897-1963 and they should be completed by the end of the year.  More here http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/family-history/news-ancestry-agree...

Cheers,

Hi Debra,

Many thanks for that information. 

I can always remember standing at the Fremantle Wharf, waving her goodbye, and then not finding the information about her leaving, 

Regards

Kay

Hi Debra

It's me again, I'm back.

I have trawled thru all of the new records re Fremantle incoming/outgoing passengers, and there is no sign of my Mother on any lists. 

I stood on the wharf and waved this woman goodbye.  Where on earth are the records, and I have gone thru every record imaginable.  I have also used every name I think she could have used, nothing.  It is like this woman disappeared.  Could the boat have gone to the Swedish Home Port, then she travelled to UK.  I am at a lost, and am getting frustrated.  HELP please.

Cheers

Kay
