Local History

I have been a member of the Chermside & Districts Historical Society (CDHS) since 2012. My main role in the society is to keep all of the technology up to date and working. Many of our members don't have much experience with computers, so I help them out when asked. I started the CDHS Facebook page in 2014, and handed over control of it to another member at the beginning of 2016. Occasionally I contribute content to the CDHS website and I have a fairly regular column, 'Blast from the Past', which is featured in the CDHS newsletter.

I became a management committee member in 2014 and was elected vice-president in 2015.

Although I do a fair amount of work within the society, my main area of interest is in personal local history projects. The include the Lutwyche Cemetery Project and Chermside High Rise Project, which are linked to on my homepage.
