  1. I am a descendent of Francis "Tracker" Williams (born in Gundabooka 1883) so what does this all mean?

    1. It means if Native title does exists in that area, you will be a Traditional owner of the Mt Gunderbooka and surounding Ngemba country.

    4. And thanks Peter for that info above...there is going to be a handback of Mt Gundabooka this May and I am so excited to see it given back to the original owners. I have recently taken my Elder Albert Williams back to Bourke as he wanted to lay his eyes on Gundabooka the place he was raised by his Granny before he left this world....

  2. I am also a descendant of Caroline Hilt. She was the mother of my Granddad Alfred Ernest Whye. He served in the Boer War and then settled in NZ. I didn't know about his Aboriginal background until I was an adult. Congratulations on the Native Title Claim. Debbie, I think a relative of your visited my Dad in NZ sometime in the 1970s

  4. From the above, and Liza Kennedy's book I am descended from Jimmy Keewong & Kitty Narrangie (from their oldest daughter Emily who is my great grandmother), making Jack Redtank my great grand uncle. I also noticed the Harris name there - My great grandfather was Dave Harris (married Emily Keewong daughter of Kitty) so unsure of any connections there - again what exactly does this native title and subsequent "custodian" mean?
