Have you always wanted to know more about the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP) collection?

This wonderful collection includes:

  • surgeon’s journals from convict and migrant ships
  • applications for free passage, permission to marry, land grants etc.
  • government and military appointments
  • prison records
  • musters
  • and much, much more!

The AJCP microfilm collection, available at the State Library, is packed full of interesting information useful for family history and historical research. The original material is held in libraries and archives in the UK so is not easily accessible.

The Family History Subject Specialists from the State Library will be giving a talk on this fantastic resource at Vincent Library and Local History Centre at 2.00pm on Thursday 25 October.

Please phone the City of Vincent Library on (08) 9273 6090 for bookings or more details.
