Early Pioneer families of Victoria and Riverina


Back in stock
Early Pioneer families of Victoria and Riverina

First published 1936 - 572 pages

Many families of Victoria and the Riverina are listed in this publication. The publication includes an index of those named in the text, photographs, illustrations and articles on the following school Geelong Church of England Grammar School; Geelong College; Melbourne Church of England Grammar School; Scotch College; Wesley College and Xavier College.

In the compilation of this volume I had before me three objects-to set out brirfly the records of the early pioneer, to carry the family genealogy down to the present day, and where possible, to show the lineage ; and in order to achieve these objects every source of information has been exhausted within the limits of time.
