Researching convict ancestry


Convicts are often a much wanted addition to a family tree but they are not always easily identifiable. Ancestors who came as convicts often hid their convict past as they became respectable members of society. Some of Queensland’s early pillars of society were convicts.  Kirsten Perris from the State Library of Queensland, and Saadia Thomson-Dwyer from Queensland State Archives discuss the resources each repository holds which can help track down your convict.
