Founders and Survivors newsletter
This is the final edition of Chainletter for 2013. It provides a progress report on our research, a call for new volunteers to work on the Convicts to Diggers project, a history of the Founders & Survivors Life Course Project, as well as an article by Garry McLouglin on the Keoghs of Wexford and one by Colette McAlpine about the last convict standing—was it Selina Langley?
Merry Christmas to all of our supporters and volunteers and you'll hear from us again in 2015.
This is the second edition of Chainletter for 2013. It provides a progress report on the Ships Project and the future of Founders & Survivors. Also, volunteer Colin Tuckerman writes about the Earl St Vincent; a new book, Patchwork Prisoners is reviewed; Rebecca Kippen gives a history of birth, death and marriage registrations in Tasmania; Garry McLoughlin tells the remarkable story of Irish convict Philip O'Reilly; and Jenny Wells details an example of chain migration to Tasmania.
This is the first edition of Chainletter for 2013. It's theme is 'imposture and the fantasists who committed it'. Read fascinating stories of rogues, murderers and swindlers. Also find out what the volunteers have been doing this year, and the future of the Founders and Survivors project.
A small (1.3 MB) and large (3.1 MB) version of the newsletter is available for download. Enjoy!
This third edition of Chainletter for 2012 features articles about Founders & Survivors Storylines; the common hangman, William Bamford; chain migration; the men of the Indefatigable; and a convict tour of Ireland in photos. There are also updates on Founders and Survivors projects, book reviews and volunteer news.
Enjoy reading this over the Christmas holidays. We wish you a Happy New Year!
