I cant find the passenger list
There is this, but I can't see a Mrs Foster on the original?

NSW Unassisted:
Mr Foster
User Submission: [Thomas Phillips Foster]
Port of Departure: London & C
Arrival: Sydney, NSW
Voyage Arrival Date: 22 Dec 1888
Vessel Name: Massilia

Must have been a very quick passage given an 1888 Q4 marriage.

Thanks gibbo.

Did you just get them?

I've tried the site several ways and it still says it's down.

The service you are looking for is temporarily unavailable.
Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress.

Please check again later.

We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Ok, I was wanting deaths but if I choose births or marriages I don't get the error message.
