At the FCRC seminar held on Sunday 2 May 2021, President, Dr Dianne Snowden AM, presented four longstanding and hardworking FCRC committee members with a special award recognising their contribution over many years.
Dianne also acknowledged the significant contribution of the FCRC’s transcribers and volunteers: ‘Without the dedication of the Female Convicts Research Centre database team, particularly Colette McAlpine and Elaine Crawford, and our many transcribers, in Australia and overseas, our knowledge of the lives of Van Diemen’s Land’s convict women would be much the poorer’.
