Was your ancestor a NSW criminal or the victim of a crime or a witness to a crime? This seminar provides a detailed examination of the sources (both common and obscure) available to researchers. It will use as examples Carol Baxter’s research into the Bank of Australia robbers in the 1820s, and bushranger Captain Thunderbolt in the 1860s. These sources can sometimes provide the only record of our ancestors “voice” as they recount their experiences of the crime in question.
