LAUNCH OF THE ANZAC COMMEMORATION BOOK

Book-LaunchOn 12 November 2016, the Fleurieu Peninsula Family History Group book, World War 1 ANZACS of the fleurieu peninsula: Stories from Pioneer Families was launched  at the Arts Centre, Port Noarlunga. All members who have contributed to the book invited. Our Member Kath Fisher is to be commended (kathfisher6@hotmail.com) for her efforts along with her team. All family members who contributed to book were given a copy of the book. The programme of Commemoration included members of the Noarlunga 40 Army Cadets; soldiers from Reenact SA; family members of soldiers and nurses in the book; displays; entertainment and light refreshments. This event was funded by a Commonwealth Grant (Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program) and fund raised by members of the project committee and the Aussie Group


 

The first meeting for 2018, our new President, Joy, who is doing a great job in her first year, with confidence, and is calling on members to share with our traditional ‘Show and Tell’ scenario next year, with short excerpts of their experiences and challenges inn their Family History research, or other news.

This may change, but please be prepared even at this early date.

Our Webmaster is now calling on the readers of this site to provide him with historic events of the Fleurieu Peninsular, whether it be how many of our local names were sources, important or interesting stories of pioneers, even the set up of wineries throughout, tourism entrepreneurs, anything which would interest the general community in dealing with family history.

e.g., the name Cornish, which came up with this writer, from two totally different family lines, but resided in the Gumeracha area, also Queensland, and maybe Ireland.
