Bingara Museum welcomes Withers family history

October 28, 2016

Bingara and District Historical Society members were delighted to receive a donation to the Museum of two books A Time Gone By Not Forgotten ‘Bedside to the Grave – Our Heritage’, which is a history of Bingara’s Withers family.

The books were donated by Bingara resident, Trevor Withers, and Robyn Ladd (nee Withers), and presented to Historical Society Secretary, Judy Peterson on Monday. (pictured opposite)

Robyn, who compiled the book, travelled with her husband Michael for the presentation. Trevor, of course, is well known in Bingara, and a font of knowledge, particularly Withers family history, and his recollections of his early life in the Barraba road area.

Mrs. Ladd spent many, many hours researching and consulting the family before compiling the book.

The result is a book which is of interest not only to the Withers family, but anyone interested in the history of the Bingara district, as the extended family played a significant part making Bingara the place it is.
