Our member Jeff spoke to us using Zoom. He introduced us to basics of accessing the land titles and parish maps using the Historical Land Record Viewer. This talk will open the opportunities to find family locations for attendees.
Jane is our member and spoke in October 2019 and at the 2019 Conference about the huge number of names of children sent to the industrial schools in NSW (Newcastle, Biloela, Shaftesbury and the Vernon) that have not survived the passage of time so did not reach State Archives. Jane is attempting to identify as many of these children as possible.
This list of names and a guide to the industrial schools of NSW is the subject of a future publication for the Society. Some of this research is on Jane's website.
