Information Sources


This series consists of a State Migration Office, and subsequent agencies, card register to nominators, c. 1946 - c. 1985. The register is arranged alphabetically by the name of the person who is nominating/sponsoring the immigrant, and it includes cards for individuals who, or companies and organisations which nominated or sponsored immigrants, or made inquiries about the possibility of immigration to Queensland.

The details listed on each card include file number; name and address of the nominator and relationship to nominee; name and address of nominee; name of spouse and children (if any); age; occupation / trade; schedule number and date; priority; accommodation; employment; police report; amount paid; name of ship and date of arrival and remarks.

The cards may include other information relating to the nominee and their settlement in Queensland. In some cases an annotation indicates that the relevant file has been destroyed and the details have been recorded on the back of the card. The information contained on the cards is mostly duplicated in the card index to nominated immigrants, which is arranged alphabetically by the name of the nominee.
