About this webinar

Exploring the life of a convict ancestor can be exciting but also a daunting task. This webinar leads participants through a methodical examination of the records available at various stages of a convict’s life from trial through to freedom. After developing a framework for investigation, case studies are then used to demonstrate the various records available and where to find them, including both within Australia and overseas. Issues such as record conflicts and understanding the broader social context will also be explored to more fully understand changes in terminology and record types.

    I have researched the stories for a few convicts, but now I need to go back and check whether there is more information about these convicts. There are so many more resources out there than I realized. The syllabus will also be very useful. Thank you.

    Quite interesting. Gave some insights into how closely England tracked the criminals.

    Andrew gave a great presentation on a new, to me, topic. In fact, my adult son came into the room and said it sounded like an interesting topic.

    Excellent presentation; chock full of information laid out for the audience in a sort of step-by-step method. I never would have thought there would be such a wealth of data on this rather limited subject.
