Early Menangle – “Voice of the North”

Early Menangle is a collection of newspaper articles written by J.J. Moloney under
the pseudonym J.J.M. and published by the Voice of the North newspaper monthly
between August 10, 1927 and July 10, 1929. At some point after the publication of
the last article, they were collated and printed as a book, a copy of which is held by
Picton Family & Historical Society and published online at: https://www.pictonheritage.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/early-menangle.pdf

Because of the large number of names, the text was taken from Trove, compiled and
indexed. The names were then checked against the Camden Area Family History
Society (CAFHS) database and where a distinction was required, dates of birth
added. Any errors made during this process are those of the editor.

C.A.F.H.S July 2021 Update – A message from your Committee on the current status of our Society.

Camden Area Family History Society meetings and groups are once again suspended at this time, and our research room in Camden Library Complex remains closed for the duration of the present Lockdown. When the Lockdown is lifted, we will review options to reopen our Research Room dependant on current restrictions and limited space we have available. Our committee is still working behind the scenes to provide information, produce our newsletters and journals, answer inquiries and keep things running, as well as planning how we can restart the Society’s activities and reopen the room as soon as possible.

We do have some of our resources available at home, so if you have a question please send us an email at cafhs2570@gmail.com or visit https://www.cafhs.org.au/ and we’ll see if we can help!
