Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope you have had success finding your Western District family over the year and thank you for your continued support in 2017. As a thank you, I’ve gathered the most popular photos I have posted on the Western District Families Facebook page this year and made a video. The collection gives a wonderful glimpse into the Western District’s past. I hope you enjoy the Western District Families 2017 Album.
Now to December Passing of the Pioneers. I selected the obituaries and started my post at the start of December and here we are at Christmas and I’ve advanced no further. We are in the last weeks of moving house which has turned into a bit of saga and in three weeks I don’t know how much internet access I’ll have. That then jeopardises my chances of getting a January Passing of the Pioneers out. Therefore, I’ve picked out fifteen obituaries from both December and January and hopefully I can get a combined post done before 12 January. There are some really worthy pioneers among them and I’d love to add them to the Pioneer Obituary Index in the coming weeks and not have to wait until this time next year. If you don’t see a post in January, hopefully, everything will be back to normal in February. Fingers crossed.
