Convict Interest Group

Fremantle Prison


CONVENOR: Joanne Hyland


The aim of the Convict Special Interest Group (SIG) is to provide a forum for members of FamilyHistoryWA (FHWA) with a special interest in Convicts. The forum provides members with a broader understanding of the convict system in Australia and information of the available records for research. Our interests cover convicts sent to all states of Australia and the Parkhurst prison boys.

Join us at the Convict Group


To attend the Convict SIG you must be a financial member of FHWA or the Affiliated Organisations.

Our Newsletter, Convict Links, is published quarterly in March, June, September and December. It is disseminated via email.

Members are encouraged to submit articles on their research or items of interest.
