DATES TO REMEMBER
The numbers attending the premises are improved of late. We have some new members who seem to be enjoying the atmosphere at the club as well as their research. The lockers are being well patronized which is very pleasing.
Thanks go to those members who have volunteered their time to learn the ropes with respect to the duty roster. This is most welcome.
It would appear that, barring anything untoward, the securing of the verandah may be done in the not too distant future thanks to our Patron Greg Chippendale.
Elaine and her helpers deserve a big pat on the back for their efforts in the production of her school reunion book and the resultant profit to the club. Well done!
Thanks to Jack for his efforts in downloading and printing the multitude of records given to the club.
Is there something that your committee can do to make the club more attractive? If so let one of your committee know. If you are shy, please make use of the suggestion box as all suggestions will be addressed and the results notified.
Our “Open Day” on the 23rd of last month did not go as planned. My big “X” for the year must go to the local media for its singular lack of response to our requests for the inclusion of advertising for this event.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE:
OUR CLUB’S ONLY EMAIL ADDRESS IS NOW
A BIG Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help out with library duty on a regular basis or on a ‘needs be’ basis.
However we are still in need of more members to volunteer for ‘duty’. It is not hard – it is just a case of being there to assist new members and visitors. Ideally we would like to have two duty persons per session. At the moment, most days, we have just one person ‘on duty’.
Stories for the Hindsight can be
submitted at any time for publication in upcoming issues. Our magazine is sent to many other Genealogy
Also don’t forget our birthday page in the Hindsight. If you have a birthday coming up could you please submit your baby/toddler photo for inclusion in the next issue of Hindsight.
It has been suggested that we
include a regular column in the Hindsight “Help Wanted”, where members who are
having difficulty with their research may like to submit questions about
certain aspects of their research. So
get your thinking caps on, and depending on what space is available in the
magazine, your questions will be printed.
Remember, our magazine goes to other genealogy clubs all over

MILLMERRAN CAMP OVEN FESTIVAL – Held every 2 years.
A great place to visit. Friendly atmosphere. Great stew made in camp ovens, and damper, BUT be warned….the flies are horrendous, and make eating your food a case of be quick, or have flies in your dinner. Millmerran is 80km southwest of Toowoomba. Total population of Millmerran is 1191 (except at Festival time)
