Immigration index: cards filed incorrectly

Today I found three cards filed incorrectly in the Card Index to Immigrants compiled by Queensland State Archives:

(1) 'PECKS William' is filed among cards for PECK without an 's'.

(2) 'PICKUP William' is filed after PICKVANCE.

(3) 'PIERCE William and family' is filed among cards for PICKUP.

I have asked the Archives to fix this.

These cards (in the Public Search Room at Qld State Archives) index various 19th and 20th century immigration records that are NOT covered by the Archives' on-line indexes. See the advice on my Web site.
