Information gathered along the way

  • Irish nuns who came to the Colonies
    You are now able to trace these courageous women, thanks to the efforts of Br. Rory Higgins on the staff at St Bede's College, there is a full list of some 14000 women who have joined religious orders to become sisters (nuns). The list shows those who entered religious orders in Australia before 1920 or who came from Ireland as nuns. For privacy reasons the data base stops at 1920.
    You are free to download the full list in compressed format (zipped).
