    Second from left (front row) is my mother Ruth Evans with her older sisters Aunty Barbara and Aunty Beryl. Ruth was born in 1929 in Cherbourg PS: the earlier comment that the first on left is Aunty Doris Murray. Aunty Doris looks like my Mums eldest sister Aunty Helen but I'm not sure. Thank you for sharing. My family and kin mob had no coypyof this photo so thank you again. Regards Dulcie Bonsch

The Cherbourg Memory is an initiative of the Rationshed Museum and brings together the photos, videos, oral history recordings, documents and other artifacts of our lives on this settlement. It a website, an archive, an educational resource, a recording project, a research data-base, a store of the people’s stories and an interactive space for comments and engagement. We encourage the people of Cherbourg, the Indigenous communities in Australia and others who have experience of our settlement to help us create a living archive of Barambah-Cherbourg. So find out a little more about the Cherbourg Memory, discover how you can Participate, or find out how you can Contribute to the development of the Cherbourg Memory.
