    This is a fully searchable database of all the 780 First Fleet convicts via a number of search options. Searching can be done by name, ship or by crime. The data can be downloaded free of charge provided it is for non-commercial use. This is a great way to introduce students to real data based on real people. There are many opportunities to introduce children to the language of the day through information written in the database based on the occupations listed for some of the convicts.
