MyHeritage adds UK Convict Registers

This MyHeritage addition contains British transportation registers which cover the full period of convict transportation to Australian territories from 1787 to 1867. Records for 123,888 convicts typically include the name of the prisoner, date of transportation, the ship’s name, and the date and place of conviction, if available.

The transcripts are sourced from the Digital Panopticon that links UK and Australian records, including for later periods.

  1. A bonus for those who already have a MH sub and use the MH tree…I love delving into convict records at the various Australian archive sites…so much is available for free! And the Digital Panopticon is such a boon.
