Firstly, I would like to know if there are free online sites where I can look up tasmanian passenger lists for my ancestors travelling to Tasmania during the 1800's. Also leaving Tasmanian for other states.
Secondly, I have been told of two convicts in my husbands paternal grandfathers family and I have checked online and cannot find either of them listed. Would some one be able to lookup for me and confirm one way or another whether they are convicts or not. Or if there are free sites to find these convicts. The names are Robert Bass, it is said he was sent out for stealing a box of silk; the other is Mary Lee again it is said that she and a companion were sent out for stealing silk handkerchief's from a shop. She is supposed to have been born about 1793, somewhere in Scotland and she married William Gangell in 1819 at Hobart. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Regards Sheryl
