Where's Wallace? Finding lost places in Queensland
Presenter: Dr Kerry Raymond
When we research our family history, we often encounter place names that we cannot find on a modern map.
Many places in Queensland have changed names over the years, or just disappeared off the map completely, making it a challenge to know if where our family was.
Kerry Raymond's interest in lost place names began when her great-grandfather's birth certificate revealed he was born at the One Mile Swamp.
This led to the creation of her Renamed Places in Queensland website and a passion for locating our lost place names, closed schools, etc., that appear in our family history records.
In this talk, Kerry will present the techniques and resources she uses to locate lost places in Queensland.
