Register for Tuesday's Down Under webinar — How to Catch a Criminal: Finding Records for Your Rogue Relatives Downunder by Kristy Love, PhD


Australia has a wealth of publicly available records for people who have interacted with the criminal justice system, be they criminals, suspects, victims of crime, witnesses in criminal cases, and law enforcement officials, but do you know how to find these records? This talk will do a deep dive into the available record sets, including mug shots, prison registers, criminal court records, inquests and coronial records, and Police Gazettes, among others.
