Travel back in his­tory

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Co­bram Ceme­tery Trust is plan­ning to host a his­tor­i­cal walk at the Co­bram Pub­lic Ceme­tery in early Novem­ber.

Co­bram Ceme­tery Trust sec­re­tary/trea­surer Rachel McKay said the theme for the event would be the ‘Ital­ian In­flu­ence’ on Co­bram and district.

‘‘The trust would like to in­clude fam­i­lies with an Ital­ian her­itage,’’ Ms McKay said.

‘‘If you would like to in­clude your fam­ily, please con­tact us as soon as pos­si­ble.

‘‘We re­quire a short story of your loved one’s life in­clud­ing info about birth­date, when they came to Aus­tralia, oc­cu­pa­tions, where they lived and about their fam­i­lies.’’

Pho­tographs to be in­cluded in a book­let are re­quired by Septem­ber 30 and once pub­lished, the book­let will be avail­able at Co­bram’s Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre for any­one seek­ing fam­ily con­nec­tions for fam­ily his­to­ries or just in­ter­ested in lo­cat­ing rel­a­tives.

For more in­for­ma­tion, phone Co­bram Ceme­tery Trust sec­re­tary/trea­surer Rachel McKay on 0418 306 265 or email mck­ayrachel@mc­me­dia.com.au
