Ninguém diria....

MORE than 4 million Australians and 2 million Britons are related to convicts deported from Britain to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries, genealogists said today.

Based on the records, demographics, birth rates, census data and migration and emigration patterns, the sites estimated 22 per cent of living Australians had a convict ancestor while there was a one in 30 chance for Britons.

Information that can now be accessed includes the names, dates and place of conviction, terms of sentence, names of ships, departure dates and colonies where most of the 163,021 people were sent.

Convict deportation peaked in 1833 when 36 ships transported nearly 7000 people to Britain's former colony. The journey lasted eight months, six of which were spent at sea and two in ports for resupply and repairs to vessels.

It is estimated that by the time transportation ended, 40 per cent of Australia's English-speaking population were convicts. - AFP
