Welcome to the GSV

Have you got a niggling question?

Do you ever want to ask a quick question arising from your family history research and see if someone knows the answer? 


The GSV launched its membershelpmembers forum for just that purpose.


Our members are a great source of knowledge and helpful suggestions.


In the last few days three members have jumped online with suggestions to help another locate goldfield place names, Double-O Creek and Banshees Creek. And there have been over 750 posts on nearly a hundred topics so far.


It is only for members - but this is yet another good reason to join GSV if you are not a member.


This coming Thursday Tom O'Dea will give an overview of the Forum. His presentation will include a demonstration and he will answer your questions.


Thursday 3 June at 10.30 - 11.30 am. 


Members can log in to register for this Zoom session.

So join in the Forum. Ask questions and help others. Share your experience. 


What better way to spend part of your present lockdown? (Just joking!)

Richard Burg Chomley

My 2nd great granduncle Richard Burg Chomley (1840-1874) arrived Melbourne 9 Feb 1849 (aboard "Stag"). He owned a property "Tongola" at Lyndhurst/Cranbourne and was living there in 1872 - there is a Court & Researve named Tongola there. I would be interested in any details/maps re Tongola at that time. Thank you.
