We have compared radio images from the Australia Telescope Compact Array and X-ray images from ROSAT of an area about 560 pc in diameter around the very extended emission nebula N19 on the southwestern edge of the bright ridge of the Small Magellanic Cloud. These data have allowed us to identify tentatively seven supernova remnants in this region. This number is large enough to suggest that the area has recently undergone some starburst activity. N19 itself appears to contain two overlapping supernova remnants within the extended H II region.
