Transportation to Australia | The National Archives

I’ve got about, as you can see from your handout, there’s about 50 or 55 slides here so it’s going to be a relatively quick gallop through records we’ve got but also some records elsewhere relating to transportation to Australia. And throughout the talk I’m going to use a case study of someone called John Jobson who was transported to Australia in 1820 and you’ll see him cropping up in some of the records that I put up on the screen.

John Jobson, interestingly enough, was the great, great, great, great grandfather of a member of the staff of The National Archives. A member called Adrian Jobson is one of our medieval specialists so it’s thanks to Adrian that we can use him as a guide to the records that we hold here.

And really today’s about introducing the subject of transportation to Australia to you if you’re not particularly

Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle: For Some People, Intimacy Is Toxic

It is practically an article of faith among psychotherapists that an intimate human relationship is good for you. None other than Freud himself once famously said that health requires success in work and in love.

I’m not so sure. It seems that for some people, love and intimacy might not just be undesirable but downright toxic.

Not long ago, a man consulted me about his 35-year-old son, who had made a suicide attempt.

“I was shocked, because he never seemed depressed or unhappy in his life,” the man said of his son. “He always preferred his own company, so we were relieved when he started to date.”

He went on to tell me that he and his wife had strongly encouraged their son to become engaged to a woman he was dating. “She was perfect for him,” he recalled. “Warm, intelligent and affectionate.”

Everything seemed to be going well until,

What’s My Car Worth?

One of the most important pieces of information to have on hand when purchasing a vehicle — especially a used one — is its actual value when conducting both a private sale and a dealer-authorised sale. Knowing a car’s value ahead of time allows buyers to get a great and fair deal on a car, while sellers can use a vehicle’s value to price the sale fairly and attract the largest number of potential buyers.

At What’s My Car Worth? we aim to provide this service as conveniently as possible. Using a car’s number plate and basic information about its features and mileage, we can calculate with a good degree of accuracy what a car is worth when buying it from a dealer, or when conducting a private sale or purchase away from traditional dealer lots. Our service is quick, efficient and free, and it’s the best way to make
