  2. The National Archives of Ireland website has an online index to Irish convict transportation registers and convict petitions. Some registers were destroyed by fire so the records are not complete. You can find further information about the convicts by noting the reference number and consulting the microfilms which were donated to Australia by the Irish government to celebrate the Bicentenary. These microfilms are held in major libraries around Australia, including the State Library of Western Australia.
