Are you the descendant of a convict?
Utilising just released data from the State Library of Queensland, I have put together a searchable database of the British Convict transportation register. Over 123,000 of the 160,000 convicts transported to Australia are in this database – check out your families Convict Records!
I have already found some interesting facts – Did You Know: 603 convicts carried the name John Smith – the most common name in the records?
Don’t miss the convict facts for all sorts of weird and interesting things. Over time I will be adding information about the First Fleet, Second Fleet and Third Fleet, the lifestyle of convicts and more.
Did I mention its free?
