As of 9 July 2011, there are over 48,100 individuals in this database!
The site is called ‘Australian Royalty’ because Marion Purnell is descended from convicts. Her direct ancestors, William Purnell, Bridget Welsh/Murray, Samuel James, Simon Moulds and Ann Davis, were all transported as convicts.
As she developed the site she inter-connected many convict, free immigrant and indigenous families. Currently, she will include anyone who she can connect in a familial relationship. If you want your family to be included or have corrections, photos or stories, Marion would be very grateful to hear from you. You can browse everyone who is in the database. http://bit.ly/oudSyk
