Definitive index to the Pacific ports and islands visited by American whalers and traders in the 19th century

  • AU PMB MS 970
  • Collection

Please refer to the full entry in PMB 200

The purpose of the index, published as Where the Whalers Went, (Robert Langdon, ed.), Canberra, 1984, is to facilitate research into the logbooks copied on microfilm under the New England Microfilming Project organised by the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau in 1970 and 1976. The logbooks are principally those of American whalers and traders that visited the Pacific in the 19th century. With related material, such as account books, correspondence, charts and newspaper clippings. The logbooks were copied as PMB 200-400 (the first part, 1970) and PMB 540-45; 571-580; 671-699; 720-900 (includes the American Board of Commisioners for Foreign Missions); 910-911; 914-915; and 953-958 (the second part, 1976). The index supersedes the Bureau's publication Thar She Went (Robert Langdon, ed.), Canberra, 1979 and includes information on several island groups that were not covered in the publication. These groups are the Bonin, Galapagos, Juan Fernandez, Kermadec, Line and Phoenix groups of islands.

New England Microfilming Project

Itineraries of whaling and trading ships, in the Pacific Ocean

  • AU PMB MS 901
  • Collection

Please refer to the full entry in PMB 200<BR>In its New England Microfilming Project of 1970 and 1976, the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau obtained microfilm copies for its sponsoring libraries of more than 2,000 logbooks of American whaling and trading ships that visited the Pacific in the 19th century. Subsequently, a team of researchers was engaged to read the logbooks on film to establish where the ships went in the Pacific. The Pacific in this case was defined as Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Information sheets were prepared for each ship giving the captain's name, etc., the location(s) of the logbook(s) copied, and details of the ship's itenerary. The sheets were used in the preparation of the two published indexes mentioned below. The sheets have been microfilmed as PMB 901 to 908.

See indexes American Whalers and Traders in the Pacific, Robert Langdon, ed., Canberra, 1978 and Where the Whalers Went, Robert Langdon, ed., Canberra, 1984. The information sheets appear in alphabetical order by ship. On this reel: Ships Abby P. Chase - Brunswick
