I made a "convict bonnet" for Till Flower in 2006 (for an exhibition that was to travel Australia in honour of the convict women’s lives in Tasmania). I was wondering if you could tell me where the "bonnets" are now? I am hoping they have been kept as a continuing history of these ladies amazing lives.

Re the Convicts Bonnets - contact the Female Convicts Research Group - http://www.femaleconvicts.org.au They should be able to let you know. You can also register as a direct descendent of female convicts and they are a wonderful research group.
