ENCOUNTER WITH BUSHRANGERS
Frederick Augustus Elvery (1857-1882)
In the tiny cemetery at the small village of Avenel in country Victoria lie two of Ireland’s sons. One has an impressive engraved granite headstone near the front gate suggesting the privileged status into which he had been born. The other’s grave is not only unmarked, but is also unknown. The coincidence of these two unrelated Irish immigrants who never met, being brought together in this remote spot is not the only one associated with their lives in the colony.
Frederick Augustus Elvery, 21, third son of John West Elvery of Dublin, left London on 19th September 1876.
As well as the Journals, this CD also contains a complete run of the Genealogical Society of Queensland News Letters from 1979 to 1989. First published in 1979, the newsletters have general news about the society and its branches, conferences, seminars, workshops and other material of interest to members.
For the first time the newsletters are fully searchable as a PDF document on CD ROM – published by Archive Digital Books Australasia.
This CD contains high quality scanned images of the original journals and newsletters, and these have been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
