The Harris Family Tree

Research Interests - May 1997

My special areas of interest are NSW immigration from 1835 to 1890, Bounty Immigrants, early Camden NSW (particularly the workers at Camden Park), and Yulgilbar Station in northern NSW.

The Sheather Family Home Page is a collaborative work with my cousin, Philip Sheather from Wagga Wagga who I met through the Australian and New Zealand Genealogy newsgroup. There are 15,000 related persons represented on the site.

I am currently working on pages for the Phemisters of Scotland and New South Wales, and the Hilders of Sussex, Kent and Australia. In addition, a recent discovery has steered me in the direction of the Second and Third Fleets in search of a previously elusive family line.

For information on any of the families listed here or on the linked pages, please contact me at
