Over the next few weeks I’ll be presenting a series of articles. Each will be among those that I’ve found relating to various ancestors whose lives have been recorded in some small way, in the online newspaper archives of the National Library of Australia.
Due to the poor quality of some of the article scans, I’ll be reproducing the transcripts that I’ve placed onto the archive site.
In chronological order, I'll begin by posting the articles relating to the struggles at Cummeragunja (various spelling variants), and the eventual walk-off by a majority of the residents following my grandfather's arrest.
The following article is from the Melbourne Argus, Saturday - 4 March, 1939.
