Who am I ? Kerrie Anne Christian (nee Adams) - daughter of Cyril Ross "Tipper" Adams. There have probably been 5 or 6 generations of the Adams family living up around the Macintyre River. Many were in Goondiwindi and Boggabilla - and some still live in Goondiwindi. Some of us live a long way from there - but we still like to know what's happening in the old towns. Dad's family had connections to Waters, Weatherstone, Doughty, Barden, McCosker, Power and Maunder families as well - and up around Walgett and Collarenebri / Collarendabri.
I help out in a few organizations Black Diamond Heritage Centre - and South Coast Chapter of Felleowship of First Fleeters - I am President of both.
