Hunter Valley History Connection
| Do you have a family connection or interest in the history of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley? |
Would you like to publish your Family History or Genealogy? Or maybe you have a special interest or knowedge about Local History. Perhaps some information about the town where you grew up, a convict in your family or the history of a building or place that you would like to share with others?
At Hunter Valley History Connection you can create and publish your own history pages for free. You can upload images or videos and present your history your way.
Pages are available for different towns, so that you can add your history to whichever town is relevant. For each town there is a Local History and a Family History page.
You can create a sub page (or several) under the Local History page of your town to record your knowledge of the history of the area.
Under the Family History Page for your town you can create sub pages to write your own family history or genealogy.
You will need to register and use a password to enter the site. Registration is free and only takes a couple of minutes. Use the box on the right to join the Hunter Valley History Connection Wiki.
Create Your Web Pages
After you have created your user name and pass word you become a member and can begin to create your page
First choose the location of your new page from the list on the top left. Confirm the town and then select (click) either the Local History or Family History page. (Each town is divided into two sections - Local History and Family History). A page will open with instructions about how to begin adding your new pages.
This is a Wiki site.
It is free to use. Wikis are sites that can be edited and added-to by anyone who signs up. The idea is that pages get better with time and participation. So if you upload your family tree, others can add their information or photographs to your Family page. You can check latest additions via the site reports on the left. You can post any queries, comments or suggestions in the forum. There is a help section at WetPaint Wiki here
Any page you create can be locked if you wish. More towns or suburbs can be created. Send me a message if you would like any changes or have difficulties setting up your page.

I am having a great deal of trouble sorting out this family group. I've been told Ada was of Aboriginal descent. She married Samuel WILKINSON in 1889 at Stoud NSW. I think she may possibly have been born at Port Stephens NSW in 1866 to Thomas W BROWN & Charlotte Elizabeth WHITE. Ada died at Dungog NSW in 1951. Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.

I'm seeking some assistance with the parents of Samuel WILKINSON who was born to the above couple in 1855 in the Port Stephens NSW area. James & Mary Ann were married in 1848 in the Port Stephens NSW area. I have established from James WILKINSON's death registration that his father may have also been James, I do not know his mothers name, It is not listed. I have not been able to establish when or where James junior was born or if he was free or convict. His mother Mary Ann SMITH, I have been told her father was supposedly Edmund SMITH . Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
