I don’t know whether or not we are connected. I shall research further.
Welcome!This website details the McNeil family of Greenock, Scotland, as well as those families related to us by marriage. One of the earliest McNeils that we have traced is Daniel McNeil who was born in Greenock in 1813. Approximately 160 years after his birth his great great grandson, Daniel McNeil, produced this family tree in order that we can see how we are part of one large family.The symbol of Greenock is the Green Oak tree and like that tree our family has many branches, some close to home and others further afield. Our branches run from Adamietz to Young and we welcome information from all famiies.Please feel free to peruse our website and should you have any information such as names, dates, photographs or stories then please send it to us.We look forward to hearing from you

CONVICT PARRAMATTAGuiding you from the grisly ‘Hanging Green’ to ‘God’s Acre,’ this tour traces the lives of convicts – where they lived, worked, rioted and were punished. You will learn how they were treated by the emerging health care systems and where many of them were buried. Your tour features convicts who rose above their convict status by grasping opportunities in the developing colony. And you will discover less fortunate convicts who found themselves behind bars in the penal colony, at the end of a hangman’s noose, and destined for a pauper’s burial.The tour starts in Parramatta Park in front ofOld Government House. Estimated walking time: one hour

In the December 2006 issue (352nd Issue) of Biblionews, author and collector of books about railways, John Newland, had his article “Some Books in my Railway Collection” published (pp. 95-118). This article was the inspiration for the present one, though I can lay claim to only a very modest collection of “tramwayana” in comparison with his collection of railwayana, as collections of such material are evidently widely referred to these days (hence my coinage above).
Trams were very much a part of the first two decades of my life here in Sydney. I was born in 1937 in the Sydney suburb of Annandale, through which the Lilyfield tram passed. I was taken home a few days later to a house in Birchgrove, which had had its own tram service since the 1917, and in…
