    1. [Aus-NSW-Churches] Welcome to the AUS-NSW-Churches Group
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. https://Groups.io/g/AUS-NSW-Churches Welcome to Groups.io, our new home for genealogical discussions. This is an exciting time with a very impressive website and the opportunity to rekindle our communications and, perhaps, revive research that has been set aside for a time. Diane and I want to encourage you to make us of this group with your brick walls, successes, questions and whatever answers you may have for others' queries. To begin with, introductions are encouraged, including some history about yourself etc. If we can feel like a "family" we might get more out of being here. We definitely do not want to make this such a strict environment that you are discouraged from entering or starting discussions. If you on the Rootsweb list have not yet joined at groups.io, simply click on the link at top of this message and click "Join This Group." We want you to enjoy being a part of this group and to be glad you joined in the first place. If you have other group connections where you may spread the word about us that will be great as well. Looking forward to hearing from you all, Jim "Pops" Jackson and Diane Sowden

    2. Jim Jackson
    3. This has been received from the Rootsweb administration: Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team If anyone has an interest in finding alternative communication possibilities and/or suggestions for alternatives, please send a note to the list to that effect ASAP.

    1. [Aus-NSW-Churches] Help Keep This List Active
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. I just wanted to encourage you all to make use of this list in your family searches. A large number of Rootsweb lists have been made inactive due to no messages over a period of time. We want to keep as many lists active as we possibly can and your participation will help toward that goal. If you have a "brick wall" in your family search, send in a message with as much information as you have and let's see if someone may be able to help fill in those blanks. Best Wishes, Jim

    3. Hi, One of my clergy spouses that intrigues me but no information can be found except she married Rev Pascal Lamb. Her name was Jane Walker, born Bloomsbury Middlesex c.1832. They came to Australia and ministered in the Goulburn Diocese in about 1863-4. They returned to UK about 1874. Pascal Lamb was born, 1836, died 1900. He may have been the son of Ynyr Lamb.

    3. I'm afraid being women there isn't a site. I have been fortunate to find lots on ancestry.com. People have been very generous with their history. I just keep googling. Trove at the NLA is also a great Help. Thanks anyway. Judith Sent from my iPad.

    3. Hello Howard, Thanks for your reply. this is one of the saddest stories I have researched. I have a photograph of Bertha and the children, a lovely little family. After-his loss, James became a member of the Community of the Ascension at Bishopthorpe, Goulburn before going back to Goma PNG where he was fortunate to escape the Japanese slaughter of his colleagues. He died in London after an appendix operation. All my stories (I have researched about 120 women so far) are so interesting but at the same time, very difficult to find much about these women. They seemed to be behind the parsonage door!! Kindest wishes Judith Sent from my iPad.

    3. Hi Judith My great uncle, James Benson, was a Priest in what was then Goulburn Diocese, he was from Yorkshire and married Bertha Weston when he was at Gilgandra so she doesn't quite fit into what you are researching. Very briefly they went to PNG with their young daughter and had another daughter while they were there. The climate was to severe for the children so they returned to Australia and had two sons and after working for what is now the Anglican Board of Mission they went to Bodalla,( in Goulburn Diocese) on the NSW south coast. Tragically in October 1928 Bertha and the four children were drowned in the Clyde River at Batemans Bay when James at about 2am mistook the reflection of lights on the water thinking it was the punt on their side of the river and drove into the water. James could not save them and while the rescuer's were able to retrieve the bodies of the three eldest children it was another fortnight before they found Bertha and the youngest child. All the best in your research Howard -----Original Message----- From: Judith Langfield Sent: Sunday, April 07, 2013 4:53 PM To: [email protected] Subject: Re: [Aus-NSW-Churches] New admin Hello Diane, Nice to meet you.

    3. Hi Russell I am unable to help with your request, but without being rude, people are de frocked, buildings are deconsecrated. Unfortunately many of the churches in country areas are suffering the fate as Wellingrove village. Would you know what denomination it belonged to, if its Anglican I could ask some one who came from the New England area. Best wishes Howard -----Original Message----- From: Russell Sent: Sunday, April 07, 2013 1:09 PM To: [email protected] Subject: Re: [Aus-NSW-Churches] New admin Hi Diane, Congratulations and welcome. My interest lies in the area of the little wooden churches that were once dotted in isolated corners in colonial New England. Would anyone be able to update me on the condition of the long de frocked, but unique structure at Wellingrove village, near Glen Innes?
