This weekend has been very quiet. I went to the National Archives on Saturday to follow up with more research on William Melchert and his career working as a recruiter on the ships bringing South Sea Islanders to Queensland to work in the canefields. Interestingly, I also found some of the Weinheimer family signing on to work on some of the coastal steamers.
Today was a lovely showery day in Brisbane - and I spent most of it working. This week all of my manuals have to go to the printers so it is really do or die!
