Our guest speaker Ken Smith is a long-time member of the Port Phillip Pioneers Group (PPPG). Ken has researched early records of the Port Phillip District. He has scrutinised all the land transactions in the Port Phillip District from the time of the first land sales on 1 June 1837 until 1851 with the aim of finding where people lived.

Our original post for this talk apparenty mixed up two Ken Smiths  both associated with Port Phillip Pioneers Group. We extend our apologies to both. But this Ken Smith's talk at GSV was well-attended and much appreciated by all.
