Card index to applications for assisted passage as agricultural labourers 1921 - 1924
This series consists of cards indexing applications for assisted passage as agricultural labourers.
The cards record: name, file number, name of ship, dates of departure and arrival, age, nationality, religion, names and ages of wife and children, name and address of employer and details of loan. Not all sections are completed for each card and a small number of cards relate to women migrants.
The cards act as a partial index to GRG7/9 "Applications for assisted passage by farm youths, agricultural workers and agricultural settlers" and GRG7/23 "Correspondence files ('Imm' dockets) - Immigration Officer".
The Special List is arranged alphabetically by the surname of the applicant and also records their first name, age, ship name, arrival date (not in all cases) and a file number reference (not in all cases).
