The cricket oval at Barham, NSW, with its new white picket fence ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday I travelled to Koondrook and Barham with my Mum and Dad, to visit some of Dad’s cousins. We enjoyed aย delicious lunch at the Barham Club and it was wonderful to listen to everyone reminisce. One cousin I hadn’t seen since I was a sixteen-year-old exchange student in New Zealand – he was living in Auckland at the time and we met up after a lady who worked with my host ‘mother’ realized I had the same surname as the Aussie her cousin had married. For a homesick teenager it was wonderful to visit a family member andย see an amazing family resemblance so far away, even though we’d never met before that.

I now have a pile of family history papers, documents and details and we are hoping I can connect a few more dots.

And, it has reinforced my commitment to writing down family stories and interesting snippets . . . who knows who might want to read them one day ๐Ÿ™‚

Just around the corner from the printer’s office is this lovely park dedicated to those who founded the area.

Pre . . . computers, electricity, phones, supermarkets, cars and all those mod-cons we take for granted!

What has it seen? Who has it seen? What’s inside?

Once upon a time…

…this was a spectacular building but it still holds that certain charm and, I’m sure, the ghosts of many stories ๐Ÿ™‚
