The records relating to the more than 80,000 men and women transported to New South Wales between 1788 and the 1840s, including the ‘convict exiles’ from the later 1840s and 1850s, provide family historians and other researchers with a unique resource. They document the human stories of the transportation system, recording the experiences of the men and women who established new lives far from home.

These records are invaluable in tracing the ‘career’ of convicts as they progressed through the system from their arrival in the colony ─ starting with the convict indents. For many there can be records of tickets of leave, pardons, certificates of freedom and, for some, colonial punishment, secondary transportation or death.

This handy guide gives you advice on getting started, an overview of the main convict records from News South Wales and overseas and how and where these can be consulted. These include trial records from the UK, Ireland and elsewhere, related colonial records and newspapers. There are links to these records and a list of books for further research.
