BROKEN HILL (originally known as Willyama) is an isolated mining city in the far west of outback New South Wales, Australia, located near the border with South Australia on the crossing of the Barrier Highway and the Silver City Highway in the Barrier Range

In 1844, the explorer Charles STURT saw and named the Barrier Range and at the time referred to a "Broken Hill" in his diary.

Silver ore was later discovered on this broken hill in 1883 by a boundary rider named Charles RASP.

The "broken hill" that gives its name to Broken Hill actually comprised a number of hills that appeared to have a break in them.

The broken hill no longer exists, having been mined away.

... Street names in Broken Hill are of historical significance as they were generally named after the first alderman (e.g. Ryan, Cornish, Chapple), mining officials (e.g Jamieson, Wilson, Patton) or minerals (e.g. Argent, Blende, Sulphide, Chloride).

... On New Years Day 1915, Broken Hill was the scene of the only enemy attack on Australian soil when, only four months before the Anzacs fought the Turks at Gallipoli, a picnic train on its way to Silverton came under attack (more at the link)

BROKEN HILL Complex - regional history
... The Wiljakali people traditionally occupied the lands around Broken Hill visiting the Barkindji people on the Menindee Lakes each year

The Cruise is completed! A wonderful time had by all!

Our fabulous Alaska cruise is history. Thirteen of us cruised from Seward, Alaska, to Vancouver, British Columbia on the MS Statendam of the Holland America cruise line. And just in time it seems - the same day we disembarked in Vancouver, the Statendam caught fire and went adrift on the northbound cruise that evening. The two cruises after ours have been cancelled. Marge was looking out for us it seems.

Here are some photos of the cruise. I'll be updating these from time to time.

To celebrate what would have been my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, and to memorialize my mother, my father and all of their descendants (13 of us) went on an Alaska cruise. We enjoyed seeing Collegiate Fiord, Prince William Sound, Glacier Bay, Sitka, Juneau, and Ketchikan, and finally Vancouver. We saw Dahl sheep, humpback whales, orca (killer) whales, bald eagles, golden eagles, salmon, bears, etc. etc. I personally enjoyed standing on the Verandah deck with my new Nikon Ocean Pro 7x50 binoculars and watching for whales.

We all gained 10 pounds or more eating the abundant and free food. We enjoyed our own private dining room "The Queen's Room" where we were all seated together at the second seating (after a mixup that had us at first seating was cleared up with the maitre 'd). We had our own two waiters and a wine steward, with large viewing windows behind the main table.

Many of us took shore excursions ranging from mountain bike rides to float-plane "flightseeing" to helicopter rides, to salmon fishing trips.

Our results in the on-board casino varied - I know I donated nearly $100 to the Holland America Line, but my in-laws apparently compensated for that by winning at the slots and blackjack table.

Till we meet again -Regards - edmondsallan

... The earliest Hayes ancestor we know of was my great great grandfather Bernard Hayes, born in Ireland in the 1820's, immigrated to Ohio in 1854, settled in Nebraska in 1865, died in 1907 in North Platte, and reportedly buried in Friend, Nebraska. This page is devoted to genealogical information regarding Bernard and his descendants.

I'll try to accumulate meaningful information here that will be of interest to the family. It seems to me that earlier Hayes generations have taken an almost perverse pride in not recording or keeping track of relations. So far as I am aware, nobody knows just where in Ireland Bernard came from. Family folklore claims he left under duress, having killed a man's mule. I suspect a potato famine had something to do with it.

.. Marjorie Rosemarie Perlinger Hayes, 1928 -2001.

The death on December 16th, 2001 of my mother has obviously affected us all.

The family had made plans to go on an Alaska cruise in July, 2002, to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, and we went forward with it. My mother had indicated that if anything should happen to either her or dad, we should go no matter what. I've created a memorial page to her here.

The Cruise is completed! A wonderful time had by all!

Our fabulous Alaska cruise is history. Thirteen of us cruised from Seward, Alaska, to Vancouver, British Columbia on the MS Statendam of the Holland America cruise line. And just in time it seems - the same day we disembarked in Vancouver, the Statendam caught fire and went adrift on the northbound cruise that evening. The two cruises after ours have been cancelled. Marge was looking out for us it seems.

Here are some photos of the cruise. I'll be updating these from time to time

To celebrate what would have been my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, and to memorialize my mother, my father and all of their descendants (13 of us) went on an Alaska cruise ... (etc etc)
