About Me

I have recently retired from teaching which puts me in a better position to pursue my history projects - the main one being the history of the Yarraville Sugar Works (CSR). I have also been tidying up the histories of the Tarr, Westaway and Ling families - my husband's ancestry. His parents Jack and Nancy Taig both came from Bendigo.

About Me

I love researching my family history. I live in Ballan and it was not until we came to live here, that I discovered my family's roots. My Great Great Grandfather actually had a hotel in our street. Long since gone, but its a nice feeling to think my ancestors walked this same street.

About Me

I am from a very early family in the region and Gt Gt Gt Grandfather was a carrier bringing goods to the few squatters in the region prior to the discovery of gold.

From a very early age I had a passion for history and a very enquiring mind not easily fulfilled even after reading countless volumes.  I attended university and became a materials scientist / industrial chemist before becoming a museum officer and now, presently, manager of the Bendigo Joss House Temple.

A passionate researcher and collector, I am currently researching my own family tree as well as the chemist profession here in Victoria from the 1840's onwards.  I co-present a radio program weekly on 106.7 Phoenix FM dedicated to histroical matters and oral histories pertaining to this region which has been going for nearly five years.

About Me

I live in Coffs Harbour and I am a decendant of Joseph Vincent Durand ( known as Vincent) and his son Napoleon Durand. And recently found a great article that was dated Saturday 19th of August in the Sydney Morning Herald. It was an amazing story of Joseph travelling from France to California looking for gold then travelling to Australia in 1852 when hearing of gold being discovered here. He found gold in Bendigo (Sandhurst) with his pockets well lined he returned to Sydney to marry then returned to the goldfields not to dig for gold but to grow vegetables in the locality.  The article tells of his life in Australia and the various projects he tackled in this still young country.  Joseph was 60 yrs of age when the journalist met him in the Walgett area, He was very impressed with the progress Joseph and his sons had accomplished in the years that they had been working on the land.  What  a gem of an article ! It answered many questions I had been pondering about this man.

I am interested in finding more about Josephs (Vincents)  and His Wife Elizabeths life in Bendigo in the years they were there.

Recently retired from 20 year's work (along with my husband/co-Director) of running, advertising and promoting Australia's largest and longest running Antiques and Fine Art Fair in Sydney, I am enjoying delving further in my family's history. There are many connections of my family to early Bendigo from the 1850's onwards. As further background I am also a qualified librarian and for a time publisher/editor of a glossy magazine on the decorative arts in Australia.
