Between 1787 and 1812, 88 ships sailed for Australia carrying convicts sentenced to transportation.
 

Between 1787 and 1812, 88 ships sailed for Australia carrying convicts sentenced to transportation. Even though many different lists of transported convicts have survived, few actually identify all those who embarked, sailed, died, escaped, or disembarked in Australia. 

So how do researchers know who actually came to Australia? And if different lists contain different trial or personal details or even ship of arrival for a transportee, how do researchers know which is more likely to be accurate?

Carol Baxter's 'Guide to Convict Transportations Lists Part 1: 1787-1800 and Part 2 1801-1812 were prepared while she was editing the convict indents database 'Convicts to New South Wales 1787-1812' which was published oin CD for the Society of Australian Genealogists. 

These guides, however have never previously been published. This Part 1 volume contains a ship-by-ship analysis of the suriving transportation lists as well as her conclusions regarding the preparation of the lists and the likely number of transportees on each vessel. 

It is an important resource for those interested in the early years of convict transportation to Australia.
