The Convict Transports
Annual Landings of Convicts
This inexpensive CD provides an improved list of convict ships to Australia along with lots of references for further information. The author also provides a sensible guide to interpreting the columns of data and several pages of explanation about the whys and wherefores of transportation. It is not hyperlinked to sources but this does not detract from its usefulness. A very helpful reference.
