For some women, I have vast amounts of information on their pre-emigration and emigration experiences, but for other women the information is very slim. I offer a research service to examine my files and write a Research Report based on the information I have found. I have another service to provide a transcription of archival records, where available:

Research Report: provides an outline of information gathered on each bounty woman:


Archival Transcription: transcription of records on individual women, obtained from various archives in England, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. A notation regarding this information will be noted on the Research Report. Archival Transcriptions are an additional $60.
