Having grown up in Thirroul, north of Wollongong in the Illawarra, it always seemed that Boggabilla and Goondiwindi were so very far away. We had family visits there in 1964 and 1968. Then in 1973 and 2013 I visited there with my husband David. It was always interesting – every time we seemed meet different members of the Adams Family whom I hadn’t met before.
Who am I ? Kerrie Anne Christian (nee Adams) - daughter of Cyril Ross "Tipo" Adams.. Dad was a descendant of the Waters, Weatherstone, Doughty, Barden, Tulloch, McCosker, Power, Byrnes and families as well.
I help out in a few organizations Black Diamond Heritage Centre - and South Coast Chapter of Fellowship of First Fleeters - I am President of both.
