Wednesday night @ GSQ

November 28 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

GSQ is open on the 2nd and 4th Wed night each month.  On the 4th Wed night there will be a guest speaker.

Topic: Some Norfolk Island convicts
This talk focuses on a group of Norfolk Island convicts who were returned to Sydney in 1839. A life history approach was used to uncover the lives of these convicts from the time they were convicted and transported, their experiences in the colony and re-transportation to Norfolk Island. Following their return in 1839, their lives and experiences in colonial society were documented.

For members only on payment of a gold coin.
