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.
