    I've just found this which may be of iterest to you as well http://guides.naa.gov.au/resources/gu.../front.htm

    Christine




    Can I make a suggestion regarding books on Walsh Island DY - try the Newcastle Regional Library, or the University of Newcastle Library, As far as State Records go the lady should try the Mitchell library in Sydney as they hold all of the state records. However a point here - to get the best result from any search she should be as specific as possible.
    Regards,
    Bob

    Hi Mate, sadly we had to close our Forum because of( Bad Posts) I have asked our members if they can help………Aub
    I will also place your request on our site today, hopefully you will get some answers.

    Can any of our members help Christine



    I have just joined your site with the intention of seeking some information from the knowledgeable through the Forum. I may be just dim but for the life of me I can't figure out how to post a question - no button I could find. SO, here is my question and maybe you can help.

    My grandfather, Thomas Robert Vaughan Hughes, worked as an accountant at Walsh Island, roughly between 1925 and 1930 (just as it was about to go down the gurgler), and I am trying to find some more info about the place other than the general story such as the one on your website. Do you know if anyone has written a more lengthy history. I would love to get hold of it if such a thing existed. There doesn't seem to be a lot out there. I imagine any records of his actual employment would be held somewhere in the NSW Gov archives if they exist at all today. Hoping you have an idea where I might look.

    Regards

    Christen Lawrence
    If you can help email obisan@bigpond.com and I will pass it on, Aub
