Mid North Coast Pioneers - Newcastle to Lismore and beyond

This Web Site is Work In Progress

StuartOver the years, many family members have added to the data included in this site. It is because of these generous efforts that the web site has grown from simply recording my family interests, to recording family interests that are commonly linked. Because of this common linking, the families shown have mostly descended from the pioneering families of the Hunter and Manning valleys.

There are a number of families that arrived in Australia as government assisted migrants and there are a number of families who are descended from convicts. These two groups comprise the majority of the pioneering families shown here. Most of the government assisted migrant families came from the Highlands and western isles of Scotland.

I am particularly anxious that all of the information shown is correct. This is often difficult due to many factors and decisions have to be made as to what data is the most likely to be correct. The data included in the NSW on-line Births, Deaths and Marriages Indices is sometimes incorrect. Inscriptions on headstones and information in church records is sometimes incorrect. Judgements have to be made. Having said this, I am most anxious to be advised of any incorrect information that is shown. Please email me and let me know about these errors and why they are incorrect.

If your family is not included, why not drop me an email and let me know your family details. If you wish to do this, may I suggest that you read the FAQ's first, particularly this one.

On the other hand, all of the information of which we are aware is shown on our web site. We don't withhold information. Therefore, please do not make contact simply asking for more information. Again, may I suggest that you read the FAQs, particularly this one.

The details shown mostly comprise the simple birth, marriage and death details, it is desirable that this basic information is expanded to include how these families interacted, not only through marriage, but their contributions to their local areas and Australian history in general. I would particularly like information on our family members who gave their lives in various theatres of war and other conflicts. Family stories, family pictures and other anecdotes make visiting this web site much more enjoyable and worthwhile.

Finally I repeat that the information shown on this web site is certainly incomplete and there may be errors. I would be appreciative of an email notification of any errors found and the supporting sources of the correct information.
