About Us

Outback Family History was founded in 2009 by Sandy Duncan and Moya Sharp. The aim was simple, to make the local and family history on the rich and diverse Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia available to everyone free of charge.

The web site was originally called “And All So Far From Home” and home base website (http://www.outbackfamilyhistory.com.au/) was left to me by my dear friend and fellow researcher Shyama Peebles, you can read more about this on our ‘Acknowledgements’ page on our main site!

When my good friend and research partner Sandy Duncan passed away after a long and brave fight against cancer in 2012 I promised her I would carry on the work.  I now continue to carry on without my two closest friends.  Of all the extensive information contained in the site at this moment the amount of data still to add makes it only the tip of the iceberg.

The upkeep of the site relies solely on sponsored advertising and donations.  The use of the information is free to everyone for personal or research purposes.   I am committed to continuously add new information and to actively seek out new records and to provide a permanent source of reference to everyone with a common interest in the history of the goldfields.
