"Recently coming back from Nhill to Benalla we stopped in an Antique, Bric a Brac shop in Warracknabeal and I asked the owner if he had any postcards. He pointed me in the right direction. I didn't have much hope because in previous experiences I hadn't had any luck. However, I squealed in delight when I came across a postcard mentioning Fish Creek. Looking at the name of the recipient, I discovered it was my grandfather's sister Hazel Maud Evelyn Wooster who died in 1912 from polio aged 16 years. Then I started looking at the rest of the post cards and even back tracked on the earlier ones, discovering another four post cards addressed to Hazel from relatives."
There’s a slide presentation of Judy’s postcards on the Family Stories page. Well worth a look!
Phil continues to go from strength to strength and has benefited greatly from ‘one-to-one’ sessions with Deb this semester, while Margaret, who bravely began working on husband Peter’s tree using world records, is gaining confidence using ancestry.com while working on her own, more local, family tree.
