Hi everyone,

I'm a history student, and have been researching my own family history for many years. I'm looking for families with ancestors from the above area who may be interested in contributing to a book about the neighbourhood in the 19th century, in an effort to build a more complete picture of life on the goldfields.

The idea is still very embryonic, so a final product may not be available for some time. My own Woolshed family are the Wicks,German market gardeners from Langenhain in Oberhessen, who arrived in the area in about 1860. Other families related to mine in the area include Knowles, Naumann, Robson and Murray.

I would also be interested in hearing from any Byrne and Sherritt descendents, as my GG-grandfather Anton was a good friend of Margret Byrne, and his children attended school with both Aaron and Joe (it’s very hard to get an honest assessment of life for either family, as everyone no matter how unconnected seems to have an opinion.)
