Family researchers ahoy!

Two new purchases in the Local Studies Collection feature:

Enga Smith: Filling in the Gaps (2010) and
Judy Mitchell: The First Hundred Years (2000)

Filling in the Gaps traces the family history of the Mills, Mountain and Maley families from the arrival of the author’s great, great grandparents Frederick and Fredericke Waldeck, who took up farming in Greenough Flats in the 1860s.

The First Hundred Years tells the story of the Mitchell family on Barnong Station as it had been recorded in the station diaries and documents from 1889-2000. The book also includes family trees.

The books are not available for loan, but can be viewed at the Heritage Services section at the Library.
