“Transported Prisoners of Dorset” – a Talk by Mike Randall

September 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL BE OUR FIRST “FACE-TO-FACE” MEETING at St. GEORGE’S but please take note of your E-news and the website if there are any changes.

  Mike focuses on prisoners transported from Dorset, but is particularly interested in what happened to the families that were left behind, who became the forgotten ones. Mike feels they need remembering and includes a particular case study of a family of children from Lytchett Minster. It is a sad story that highlights the impact of transportation.

Mike is a retired headteacher but still involved with schools across Dorset. He also does voluntary work at Shire Hall Courthouse Museum in Dorchester, where he has researched over 500 transported prisoners. Mike has studied and researched genealogy for over 50 years and had articles published in Family Tree Magazine.

Doors open at 7 p.m.   Entry £3.00 pp
