Family historian Alan Henderson will speak about his publication 'Boots, Gold and Wool'. Alan will draw upon an outline of some key people in the Henderson Family and their lives as background to his research methods, sources, and journeys in Scotland and around the Victorian goldfields. Alan's session - from 2 to around 3.30 pm - will also include information about surprises and luck in his research journey and a section at the end on 'setting the record straight'.
Alan, who lives in Canberra and writes a monthly column for the Deniliquin Pastoral Times about Deniliquin historical events and issues, will also tell us a little about courses he has completed and what he learned.
We are very fortunate that Alan, who is David Palmer's brother in law, is enroute to the Grand Final in Melbourne and staying in Benalla for a few days!
If you know someone you think might be interested in hearing Alan's presentation, they are welcome to come along.
