Pally on ‘Who do you think you are’

Karen Greenwood has passed on news that Rove (John) McManus was on Who Do You Think You Are this week , which featured Palmyra and the Miller family

The show takes people back through history to look at their family genealogy.

You can watch the entire episode at the following link, or go straight to 39 minutes and see Rove at the Miller Home at the site of the Miller bake house on Hammad Street.


A glimpse of the 70s

Helen Verhoeff has converted this from an old Super 8 film – not the footage melodrama from Penguin Island Helen was hoping for, but looks like kids ready to go on camp.

Recognise anyone?
