In Association with the Royal Australian Historical Society.
Course Location: History House, 133 Macquarie St, Sydney.
Speaker: Christine Yeats


There is continuing fascination with crime – true crime or fictional accounts of “murder most foul”. The focus of this session will be on how the various nineteenth and early-twentieth century criminal records available in NSW, can be used by historians and writers for research into past crimes or ones that only exist in the writer’s imagination. Join archivist and professional historian Christine Yeats as she discusses some of these key records, including material at the State Archives, newspaper accounts and other related records. Christine will draw on examples from historical research to demonstrate how these records have been used.
