People of conviction: Discover your Australian past

Image from our collectionAccording to one of the library’s newest family history resources, there were three Finnerty men that arrived in New South Wales as convicts between 1788 and 1842.  As a relative of this Irish clan I am not upset about this finding. They probably just did not doff their hat at an appropriate time to a landed gent and I am all for that!

If you are interested in your own past, Find My Past AU offers access to a collection of historical records covering Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands.

This fantastic resource is  available at all our libraries. Come in and have a play and explore our many family history resources!
