Bill: When I visited the courthouse about 3 yrs ago to get the 1941 marriage certificate I had a nice conversation upstairs with the county clerk. She found your father's name for 1941. Did you see the picture of the courthouse with the man wearing a suit leaning out the window? Is that your father welcoming the starry-eyed young folks inside to get hitched?
Oliver Thanks for your interest in documenting my I'm from Barkal

Thanks for your picture. Bill Bryson looked for this site when he was writing 'Down Under' (Black Swan, 2000) and couldn't find it. He talked to a woman reporter from the Bingara 'Advocate', but she couldn't help him. As she said to him though: All that was different about Myall Creek was that white people were punished for it...Anyway, you wouldn't be able to move in this country for memorials if you tried to acknowledge [all the massacres].
If the world to themselves could have selected her father, she would have chosen Nelson Mandela.
REST IN PEACE, MADIBA
