Blog Objectives - and a warning to readers
This blog aims to consolidate and extend New England historical material originally carried on the main New England Australia site. With time, I hope that it will develop into a living history of the broader new state New England, the Tablelands and all the surrounding river valleys.
Readers should be warned, however, that the original posts are work in progress. This means that earlier posts may have been overtaken by later research or thought. I have to go through and do some updates and cross-links, but this is a slow process.
