Trove Tuesday - Carey Bay

Mr GeniAus and I are preparing for our permanent move to Carey Bay near Toronto, NSW. We have been dividing our time between our Sydney house and there. As one does I started thinking about the people who had lived in Carey Bay. I turned to Trove to learn about some of them.

Firstly I found a photo of Miss Ethyl Thompson but due to copyright restrictions I cannot publish it. You can view it here: http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/15506519.

In the Government Gazette I found a notice of Bankruptcy.

1925 'IN BANKRUPTCY.', Government Gazette of the State of New South Wales (Sydney, NSW : 1901 - 2001), 21 August, p. 3715. , viewed 07 Apr 2017, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article223015674
 There were several notices relating to probate and estates.

1987 'IN the Supreme Court of New South Wales.—Notice of intended distribution of estate.—Any person having any claim upon the', Government Gazette of the State of New South Wales (Sydney, NSW : 1901 - 2001), 19 June, p. 3135. , viewed 07 Apr 2017, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article231679490

There were also several mentions of local folk in the newspapers. The good news is that I found a photo of Ethyl in the newspaper.

It seems as though the people from our neighbourhood are typical of  Australians all around our country.

All the best with the move north. What a stunning part of Australia you are moving to. Such a great place to live

Thanks Jen. I am enjoying the times we spend here. It's hard to go back to our old place for the big tidy up.
