Wonderful News


The wonderful news is that the Maffra Spectator will be added to Trove in this financial year, from 1882 to 1920. This will allow searches online, all through those years.

A full list of the papers being added in this batch are HERE. The
Gippsland Times is already available there.

School photos on facebook

There is a new facebook group for school photos from Maffra Primary School and Maffra High School (later Maffra Secondary College). You can find it HERE.

Do you know anyone?


Does anyone happen to know anyone in this Deb Set? It has come to us as a digital copy with others from the recent Maffra "Back To". But we are at a loss for names, or even a rough date.


There is a larger copy HERE.

(Linda suspects it is a Wain to the left of the lady in black, which would make it early 1950s. But she is just guessing)
