$2.9 million research on Convict Outcomes announced
« on: Saturday 28 September 13 23:08 BST (UK) »
Today, in my local "The Courier Mail", there is a news item about convict research.  The study is called "The Digital Panopticon:The Global Impact of London Punishments, 1780 -1925"  involving the Universities of Tasmania, Oxford, Sussex & Sheffield. Eventually the public will have access. You can read more here:

Just a snippet ( if allowed)

“In addition to providing valuable evidence of the impact of punishments, the integrated database will allow family and local historians to trace individual lives across oceans and generations.”

Barry Godfrey, Professor of Social Justice in the University’s School of Law and Social Justice, said: “This project will, for the first time, make it possible to chart the fortunes of all prisoners from London who were transported to Australia from the point of their conviction until their deaths.
