This website is dedicated to the memory of my two dear friends Sandy Duncan and Shyama Peebles who both passed away in 2012.



Web site:  ‘And All So Far From Home’, now Outback Family History.

I would like to acknowledge my good friend Shyama Peebles for all her dedicated years of work which have resulted in the huge amount of the records on this site available to everyone. Shyama has now handed the reigns over to me and  I only hope that I can continue her work in the same excellent standard to detail which she always sought.

I would like to acknowledge that this website could not have happened without the patient  research assistance from my friend Moya Sharp in Kalgoorlie and the ideas and help initially from Dot Wells to get the site started.  Thanks must go to Jill Heather for all her years of research of the hard to find graves and cemeteries in the Northern Goldfields and to Carolyn Harris with her huge contribution.
