Two important Tasmanian record books by Irene Schaffer now on a single CD. Here you will find biographical information, copies of official government records, lists, facts and statistics, information on population, transportation, exiles, institutions, stocks, health and government.

'Land Musters, Stock Returns and Lists' will appeal to students of history, genealogists and everyone seeking a realistic glimpse of Tasmania's early days as the convict colony of Van Diemen's Land.

The story of 'Exiled Three Times Over' has been extensively researched and uncovers many fascinating and hitherto unpublished accounts of hardship and survival, written in a lively and readable manner.

Originally produced by Archive CD Books Australia in 2005, this title has now been remastered and re-released, and includes better searching capability. This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of the original books, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.

These books are also available on CD individually:

  • Van Diemens Land Records: etc

    Posted by Leonie Fretwell on 20th Jul 2017

    The information on the CD is just what I was looking for.

    However, from the date of being advised that it had been dispatched it took 10 days to arrive - Adelaide to Burra - compare that Australia Post service to the National Library - an inter-library loan request arrived from Canberra to the Burra Library in three days!
