Hudson at Murtoa -- Past Links Revealed


I would like to thank my wife Jenny, who has continued the work of running a home and also looking after Leah and Andrew while I have spent about 1000 hours on my genealogy hobby. Jenny has allowed me the time to tour the country side to take photographs, interview people, read old newspapers, search for ancestors in cemeteries, pore through shipping, inquest, naturalization and school records, look at birth, marriage and death certificates and write over 100 letters on my Amiga computer, asking for and giving information.

On behalf of George William HUDSON's descendants, I would also like to thank my father Wallace, for financing the brass plague at Melbourne Cemetery. There are many people who have contributed to this book. In alphabetical order, I would like to thank the following. -
