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.
