This is the website of 'Convict Connections'. We are an Interest Group of the Genealogical Society of Queensland Inc. (
Our members are constantly endeavouring to discover more about their convict and colonial heritage. We have put this web-site together with information which hopefully will assist you with your own research.

About Us

Convict Connections was formed in 1995 as an Interest Group operating within the Genealogical Society of Queensland Inc., and brings together members who are researching their convict and early colonial past. With this common interest we are able to assist one another as we delve further into our early Australian ancestry – and beyond, whether it be back to England or Ireland or a British colonial out-post. The sharing and exchanging of research information between members has been extremely beneficial. The GSQ resource room is made available to us from 10am to 3pm on the second Sunday of every second month. In return, we raise funds to purchase new records relating to the convict and colonial era. Such records include books, microfiche, microfilm and CD's – and are available for the use by all GSQ members at the Resource Centre.



All members of the Genealogical Society of Queensland Inc. are welcome to attend our meetings which are held on the second Sunday of every second month. A talk is presented at each meeting, and usually looks at resources – new and old.

The GSQ Research Centre is located at 38 Fisher St East Brisbane - open 9:am to 3:00pm, with the meeting held at 11:00am.

Meetings for 2016:

April 10
June 12

Membership is free to all financial members of the Genealogical Society of Queensland Inc.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
