'On the long voyage to Australia most ships never sighted land, nor did they have any other means of communication with onshore, while at sea for several months. In the nineteenth century navigating a ship over more than 13,000 miles of open ocean was dependent on nautical charts, a compass, and a sextant.-- inside front cover.

Authors original intention was to identify his 'ancestors who migrated to Australia -when, from where and on what ship'.-- Author's introduction.
