Another Trip To Bendigo

I keep going back to Bendigo.  I’ve visited there the last two years and will be again this year.  (very soon)

This year, as well as visiting my old favourite places, I want to visit some of the outlying towns where my ancestors lived and worked such as Majorca, Craigie, Maryborough, Elmore and Echuca.  The Echuca visit is to do with the river trade I didn’t have any ancestors, that I know of, who lived there.

My Wigley and Boyd ancestors lived in this area.  The Wigleys were miners and the Boyds were farmers etc.  This is a very broad generalisation as I didn’t want to list ALL the occupations here.

I’m excited just thinking of what things I might find out on this trip!!
