Recent additions to GIN for GSV members

        Register of the George Street School at Fitzroy no. 450 from 1914
There are almost 4,000 additions from these registers – all linked to the digital image of the relevant pages in the school register.
This last large batch of entries includes children entered in the register from 1933 and include all those born in 1937 or earlier [over 75 years]
         City of <Richmond> <rate> ledger 1857-1981
More than 7,600 entries have been added for 1867 and 1868
At this time the river flats of Richmond were densely populated and working-class areas.  Many occupants had returned empty-handed from ‘the diggings’.  It’s definitely worth checking for your ‘missing’ ancestor.
