Transportation Error In Mag?

Postby FamilyHistoryAddict » Sat Feb 16, 2008 3:03 am

Hi,

I don't want to sound like a moaning minnie or a grouchy old nitpicker [;)] because I enjoy the magazine very much; but on page 38 of the current issue of the magazine (issue 6) you show a picture of convicts being transported in 1890. This must be a mistake surely? Transportation to Australia ceased around 1868 didn't it? Ancestry's convict index only goes up to 1868.

See this website for further details:
