My Family History Trails
All my family history sites, including other family lines, and family tree database sites.

Barreau Website
My Heritage site of another member of the Barreau family, descended from Alexander Barreau.

Hamilton Family History Blog
A good source for information on the Hamiltons is Doug Wilkie.  He has produced a book, The Hamiltons 1762-1862, which has been recently updated and can be purchased from this site (click on above title to access).


Our Navy
Information on early film-maker Alfred John West, run by a descendant of his (and distant cousin of mine).  Alfred John West was a brother to Maria Louisa West, wife of Edward Dawson (II).

This website also has some family history information, on the West’s Family page.

Barreau Hotels Group
The family which started these hotels are descended from Alexander Barreau and Elizabeth.  Continuing, it seems, in the tradition Alexander started when he worked as a barman for the Ship Inn, Port Adelaide. [DB]

From the site:
“The bhg Barreau Hotel Group was established by the Barreau family in South Australia in 1980, and since then have established venues under the Barreau banner in South Australia (in Adelaide & Whyalla) and the Northern Territory (Darwin).”


South Australian Genealogy and Heraldry Society 

Family History SA
By Barry Leadbeater

Trove.  National Library of Australia.
Digitised online research.
As the site itself says, “A wealth of information”.

South Australian Company
For an account of what it was like to travel from Britain to South Australia it is worth having a look at this site.  It is for an SA family not connected to ours, but provides a good account of how The SA Company worked, and what the sea journey was like.

Historical Maps of Australia
ncludes a wonderful collection of early maps of Adelaide.
