Transported beyond the seas: a comprehensive examination of convict transportation records
Most family historians examine only the convict indents published in the Archives Kit to find details of their ancestors’ trial and transportation. As Editor of the CD-ROM Convicts to NSW 1787 to 1812 and General Editor of the Biographical Database of Australia, Carol Baxter spent months sourcing and processing convict transportation records. This seminar provides an exhaustive examination of the different types of convict transportation records (both well-known and obscure), their purpose, contents and location.
