RHYMES OF OLD TIMES IN TULLAMARINE TO BE SPLIT INTO SMALL PARTS.
The list of surnames in a journal indicates that one of them might belong to your family. The rhymes journal at the moment has a surname list for only the first couple of pages and the complete list would be at least 10 times as long (if they could be fitted in!)
Once you find that your surname is included in the list, you need to find out if the reference concerns a member of your family. Without an index to assist your search for the reference, this could waste a lot of your time,especially when this journal is about 40 pages long already, so I will try to break it into parts so that all surnames mentioned are listed and each part is only a few pages long.
The two problems mentioned above would not affect people reading journals out of general interest, so the original journal will be left as is so they can read the lot without having to go from one journal to another.
The smaller journals will be entitled TULLAMARINE RHYMES followed by the poem's name and if there is significant genealogical or other detail about a particular family, its surname, in brackets, will be included in the title.
For example STREETS AND ROADS,which contains much information about the Johnsons would be entitled:
TULLAMARINE RHYMES, STREETS AND ROADS,(JOHNSON).
Another reason for breaking journals into smaller parts is that more than one image can then be provided.
