Prior to that he made a miniature saddle for the Intercolonial Exhibition in Melbourne in 1866.

I have received the message copied below and can I say that this is not what I expected from a site like the National Archives of Australia.
When you are searching for somebody and they send you an email asking you to contact them as they have information, it builds your hopes up and then when you receive this your hopes are dashed.....I am very, very unhappy about this!!…Continue

I live in Portugal and…Continue

Secondly, I know that my Grandmother was fostered by a…Continue

I discovered only yesterday, that he was adopted and was actually the son of Dorothy Snow.
As I am trying to update our family tree, I would welcome any information about either the Murchie family, concerning whom I already have a fair amount of information, or the Snow family, about whom I know almost nothing.
Aside from this blog, I also can be…Continue
