Edmund (Ned) Collins 1817 - 1862: The Convict Baker's Boy.

‘Edmund (Ned) Collins 1817 - 1862; the Convict Baker’s Boy,’ is a Case Study in tracing convict ancestors.  It contains tips and hints on how and where clues might lie, where to find free sources of Convict records and how persistence, patience and an understanding of State record archives can remove bricks from the genealogical wall. 

Beginning long before the appearance of digitised records and the Internet, the mystery surrounding Ned’s arrival in Australia has taken many years of research to solve. Ned’s story is told through the eyes of Family Historian and writer Christine Sutton, a genealogist and family historian with over 37 years of Family History experience.  Throughout the story, Chris shares her research methods and the physical and electronic sources of information used to bring down the brick walls surrounding Ned’s origin.  Not only will readers find this book helpful in overcoming their inevitable brick walls and finding new sources of information, but they will also discover a little more about the life, times and struggles of ordinary people in a very vibrant period of Australian history.
