Today is the first anniversary of the passing of Lesley Uebel (20 January). During the
early 90s Lesley developed an interest in family history, particularly in relation to
convict ancestry and her passion led to the establishment of the original Claim a Convict
website in 1998. Lesley also produced a number of very popular CDs and books, including
the Port Jackson Anthology as well as the Index to the Sydney Gazette and was the admin of
the HHHV and very successful Port Jackson Rootsweb mailing lists.
