Another great year for Western District Families is drawing to a close. Sixty-six new pioneers joined the Pioneer Obituary Index and we celebrated more Wonderful Western District Women. Hamilton’s WW1 continued to grow with new biographies and addition of the Borough of Hamilton WW1 Honour Roll to the Hamilton WW1 Memorials. You can now read the 411 names on the board and read selected stories of those represented. The most popular post for the year was When the Earth Moved at Warrnambool about two earthquakes in the town in 1903, one of which is still Victoria’s most damaging quakes.
Over on Facebook, the Western District Families Facebook page now has over 6300 “likes”. We have looked at various themes over the year including hotels, Back to School, Town & Country and more. I really appreciate all the contributions by those following the page. Their comments offering extra information about various towns and families are invaluable. The video below is a look at the most popular photos I posted to the page over the year.
Thank you for visiting Western District Families during 2018. I look forward to sharing more family and local history from the Western District with you in 2019.
