Crime and Punishment - Australia Portal

« Back to Projects Dashboard

This is an Australian portal page similar to the Occupations Portal, with two separate lists, Crime and Punishment.

Please add persons who committed crimes and were deported to Australia, the crimes can have been committed anywhere, the punishment must have taken place in Australia.

When we work in migration areas, often the occupation, place born and in many cases in Australia the crime and punishment. At this stage it would be desirable to record all of this in lists, which projects provide for us. Combined with the interactive project The History Link we can see who of our ancestors were accused of crimes and how they were punished.

Profiles will need to be added to both the "crime" and "punishment" project that is appropriate. If its not here, create the project, you don't have to write much as the main purpose here is the list and the link next to the profile.
