As part of the University of Tasmania’s Diploma of Family History, I had to research an Australian Convict. We used a site http://www.ourfamilypast.com to create an interactive story, which served as our major assignment. Access was provided as part of the course but ongoing access costs US$59 per anum for 500MB or US$149 for 5GB, I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty expensive. It’s more than I’m prepared to pay.
I have uploaded it to this FREE WordPress account, as a series of nested pages. Maybe I’ll research another convict. No doubt I will have to do so when the follow-up unit is available. I am really enjoying the course.
