  1. I am very interested as my mother was born in Boulder Kalgoolie with all her siblings. My grandmother came on a train from old Yulgoslavia to marry my grandfather. Alerich is the surname. The house they lived in was bought to Perth and still stands on Great Northern Highwway Millendon. (Swan Valley)

  2. I am Lenora Gregory a descendant of Amos & Ellen Bradshaw of York Western Australia. We have many of our relatives buried in cemeteries around the Kalgoolie, Coolgardie areas.
    If anyone has any photos of my family I would greatly appreciate copies as we are trying to create our family tree.
    Recently 2nd cousins met for the first time and we have continued to visit and email each other.
    I know Amos jnr & George Bradshaw were up that way and Amos jnr ‘s wife Priscilla (Morse) Bradshaw died 29 June 1900 and is buried at North Coolgardie

  3. Sorry, would you please advise how to submit photos. Thank you Lenora
