A book has been published to make available the contents of this website. This book provides more facts about the people who came to New Zealand on the Blenheim. It is a snapshot of the information on www.blenheim175.wordpress.com as at the time of publication, and is published as part of the celebrations marking the 175th anniversary of the voyage.
The information about each of the families and individuals who travelled on the Blenheim is based on official records and contemporary newspaper reports where possible, and has also benefitted from a number of family histories that have been published. The focus has been on those who travelled on the Blenheim, not on subsequent (or earlier) generations. The stories are told mainly through newspaper accounts, often obituaries, or are taken from memoirs and journals written by or about the passengers.
The book includes Jessie Campbell’s Journal and Letters.
The book is A4 size, soft cover and wire bound, with 290 pages fully indexed. The price per copy is $25 plus postage and packaging of $6.50 in New Zealand.
