Archives - Convicts Transported to Australia-1788-1868
This World Wide Web Page contains information on how to access indexes for all convicts who were transported to Australia between 1788 and 1868. You should be aware that it is highly unlikely that in tracing what may have happened to any individual convict, that you will be able to find information on all the events in his or her penal servitude, as there are gaps in the records especially with assignment records, tickets of leave, and certificates of freedom.
