New Guide Will Help In Tracing Australia’s Convict Past

Posted by admin on Feb 1, 2009

Australia’s convict background might have provided an easy target in the past, but not any more.

The day has come when people are proud to have had a felon in the family.

Many people are now desperately searching for that convict link. And due to the demand, the State Library of NSW has set up a resource to help people in their search.

The Convict Research Guide focuses on people who came to the NSW penal colony as a convict during 1788 to 1823.

It links materials from throughout Australia and the world, including the National Library of Australia and the National Archives of Australia.
