Our next workshop will be held at Melbourne University on Saturday, 18 February 2012 at the Centre for Health & Society, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton, from 2-5 pm, with afternoon tea provided. Please arrive by 1:45pm and meet at the "Hub" next to the lifts on the 4th floor.

This workshop is for the Ships Projecteers to report on their findings, their problems and their successes. It’s a chance to leave the lonely keyboard and share experiences and ideas. Projecteers, their long-suffering families and companions and interested observers are all welcome.

This second issue of Chainletter for 2011 announces the beginning of our ships projects and our next Transcribers’ Workshop. In this issue of Chainletter we introduce the ships projects and provide a preview of the research guide.

This issue also includes contributions from two of our volunteers, Steve Rhodes and Judy Price, who have been uncovering wonderful stories while searching for new convicts and their descendants, or while checking and authenticating contributions.
