Founders and Survivors newsletter


Founders and Survivors Newsletter No. 6, December 2010

The December 2010 issue of Chainletter includes updates on volunteer work in progress, an article by Rebecca Kippen on rabies in Tasmania, and information by Sue Hood on transcribing Tasmanian convict records.

There are two files available for download: a larger file with a larger image resolution (higher quality images), and a smaller file which is more suitable if you have a slow internet connection.

Website update

Dear friends of Founders & Survivors,

We are delighted to announce that our new website is working, all the databases have been rolled over without hitch, nothing has crashed yet and we hope you will all be much happier with the cleaner, more elegant design.

There are images linked for records in the assignment period but we still need to connect the images for the probation era to the individual convict's record.

Female Factory Research Group

Please note that the Female Factory Research Group only works on the 12,5000 female convicts sent to Van Diemen's Land, not those sent to New South Wales. It would be wonderful to get a similar group active in New South Wales.

Founders and Survivors Newsletter No. 5, August 2010

In this second issue of Chainletter for 2010 we bring good news about the start of research projects and the final policy on the public release of data submitted by donor historians and convict descendants. This issue also features news about our partnership with the Female Factory Research Group, and an article about the Queen's Orphan Schools.

There are two files available for download: a larger file with a larger image resolution (higher quality images), and a smaller file which is more suitable if you have a slow internet connection.
