Hi and thank you I see that W is going to be a story from my family tree about nurse wiggins I have a picture of her and the cape she wore from Sorell so it will be interesting reading
Would be great if I could use the picture of her in the blog post. Or if you know a lot about her, perhaps you could write about 200 words about her life that I could then expand upon in the blog post.
Nurse Wiggins’ cape is in a glass display box in the History Room in the Sorell Memorial Hall. Her Nursing Certificate is also on display.
Peta that is the one I have a picture off and now finding out a few years ago that I am related to former marine Samuel Wiggins very proud of this heritage wanting to learn all I can about his time in Tasmania
Ralph Dodge would be interesting to include in this challenge. He is my great grandfather and was born on Norfolk Island.
