    Our latest publication is a CD ROM
    Index to Colonial Convict Movements 1827 to 1853

This index concerns convict movements in the Colony of New South Wales (encompassing what is now New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria) of nearly 10,000 convicts.
These records involve, for the time period, both Transported Convicts (those who were transported from England or English territories or colonies) as well as Colonial Convictions.
Colonial convictions were of persons who were born in the colony and committed an offence, came free and later committed an offence, as well as convicts who had served their sentences and re-offended, and convicts still serving their time who absconded or committed some other offence. The index of the films listed below is not of the complete list of all recorded movements of that time period - other sources are being indexed by State Records of New South Wales.

Index entries comprise convict's name or alias, the date of the movement, and the place from which the convict was moved. Each index entry points to further details. These details repeat the content of the index entry and comprise:

Surname as well as Alias where recorded
Given Name
The ship of 1st arrival to Australia
The ship of 2nd transportation, within Australia
Where transferred from
Where transferred to
Reel number (from State Records of New South Wales film)
Location number (of the film)
Page number of the source document on the film

The index of films listed is not of the complete list of all recorded movements of that time period - other sources are being indexed by State Records of New South Wales. Copies of the indexed documents may be viewed at State Records New South Wales, or copies may be obtained from them (details included on the CD).
