Founders and Survivors Newsletter No. 9, December 2011, and Ships Projects workshop, 18 February 2012


This final issue of Chainletter for 2011 reports on our Ships Projects and our next Workshop.

David Noakes has uncovered gold, fire and bigamy aboard the ‘Palmyra’ and Jenny Wells travelling with Glad Wishart on the ‘Governor Ready’ has met up with smugglers. We also have feature articles by Tricia Curry on the Ballarat Benevolent Asylum and Cheryl Griffin on her ancestors and new cousins.

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.

Our next workshop will be held at Melbourne University on Saturday, 18 February 2012 at the Centre for Health & Society, 4th Floor, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton, commencing at 2 pm, with afternoon tea provided. We will move to the lecture theatre in the basement which can accommodate up to 100 people so there’s no limit on attendance.

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.

To enrol in the workshop, please contact Claudine Chionh at clchionh@unimelb.edu.au. Project staff will be on leave until the middle of January, so please wait until after 23 January to register for the workshop. The registration deadline is 8 February. This time there is no limit on attendance.
