Bergman/Eckersley Family History

Welcome to our Homepage

Noel & Del Bergman.

Our main interest or obsession is Family History Research. We have been undertaking research into our forebears for 23 years.

The following pages are the basic details of our Family History Research names.

Feel free to browse the list of Surnames belonging to our Family History and contact us if you would like further information.

You will also find information devoted to our special project, the story of the voyage of the German Immigrant ship

"SUSANNE GODEFFROY" from Hamburg, Germany to Moreton Bay (Brisbane) Queensland in 1865.

The aim of this research is to produce a book which will not only tell the history of this particular voyage, but also the story of the lives and fate of the 533 passengers who undertook this adventurous voyage to begin a new life here in Queensland.

We are interested in contacting descendants of the passengers to help bring these people to life. We would like any family stories, photos, certificates, old German Documents, where they settled and when and where they married, died etc. for possible inclusion in the book.
