Yorke Peninsula Butlers update

Hi all,
This is the first post notifying a change to the tree. I hope you are now subscribing to changes.

The following changes were made as a result of our trip to the YP last week. Dianne and I are very grateful to Joe and Marilyn Butler and Graham and Marea Butler for their great hospitality. We visited the cemetery just South of Minlaton and I have now included photos of a number of headstones. We also visited the old Moorowie Station homestead and William Snr. and Mary Butler's grave. What a great find and again, thanks to Joe for arranging permission to go onto the property. Here is a summary of the changes made to date. There will of course be more to follow arising from our visit:

It is located on private property and well back from the road. Permission must be obtained to visit. It was a very sad and lonely place on the hill next to the old homestead ruins and is a stark reminder of the hard times William Snr. and Mary endured in the 1860's on their return from the goldfields.

Family View -

The Thomas/Butler & March/Baldock family tree may be found at the following URL:

If you are a member of and signed in, you should be able to see our tree as it is publicly viewable.

If you are NOT a member of or not signed in, you may be directed to the home page. As a first time visitor your will probably be offered a short period of free trial. On accepting or on signing in, you will be able to see our tree.

If you are NOT a member of and don't intend to become one, you can still see our publicly viewable tree by invitation. Simply send me an email and I will create a special link for you. It will have to remain in your cookie cache to keep working because once the link has been activated, it can't be reused. A new invitation will be needed if you kill the original.

Nobody can see LIVING members of our family tree due to privacy considerations. If you want to see LIVING members, send me an email and I will change your permissions.

Information about LIVING members is limited to basic DOB, DOM details, parents, children, siblings. Anything else published is with the permission of the living person.

Nothing is published without it being fact, based on hard evidence with the exception that old detail may carry caveats but is still considered to be reliable.

The tree is published with all due care and diligence but no responsibility whatsoever is assumed or implied for incorrect information or misuse of information.

Our New Family Tree 'weblog'

This web log has been developed to support the Thomas/Butler & March/Baldock family tree published in (Family tree branches for cousins are also included). New and changed information published to the tree and supporting information will be summarized here. The old system of making email alerts has been dropped. To keep informed you will need to subscribe to the log. (Look for the link at the bottom of the page.)
