As we now know Bankstown City Council has merged with Canterbury Council, with the name The City of Canterbury Bankstown. As such the group will welcome anyone from any area, who wishes to join and pursue the enriching (expensive) hobby, of Genealogy.
Well back to researching my Vaughans. Boy have they a tangled web!
I spread the news of our meeting far and wide and we had two visitors, who saw our ad in AFTC! Thrilled about that. We had a really good turn-out and a past member, Val came for a visit. Good to catch-up.
Cassie Mercer, from Inside History, was our guest speaker and gave a great talk on Irish Wattle, convicts who were transported to Australia. This included two of Cassie's ancestors. She is an excellent speaker and I hope she will come and speak again.
Margaret showed us her Mother's Day present, a five generation photo, from her Dad back. The photos are beautiful. Such a wonderful keepsake.
Bye for now,
