Timely reminders, Lisa. Thanks.
I found an interview with my 4th great grandfather, Lachlan McKay, in an article from 1844 on Trove (Australian digitised newspapers) online. I emailed the article to a relative who is also researching the family and he sent back a message saying "This article is actually a book review. If you look at the actual book in the library, there is more from Lachlan, including some handdrawn maps that he did of his property". Just relying on online sources, I would have had only part of an interview and would have missed all the rest of the treasure.

Hi Megan, I'm related to you. I'd love to know the name of the book with the maps you're referring to. My grandparents were Thomas Frederick & Eveline Jane Kerswell (nee Mackay), g.g.grandparents were William and Hannah Maria Kerswell (nee Rymes).
