Inside History: WA's Daring 20th Century Bushranger

We're delighted to report the story of our local bushranger Frank Thomas has been featured across five pages in the final hardcopy edition of Inside History magazine (Autumn 2017). The magazine is available from selected newsagents around Australia and can also be ordered online direct from Inside History for $9.95.

The Geraldton Family History Society got their hands on a copy in good time and reported on Facebook: "The current and final issue of the Inside History magazine has some fantastic articles. For those of us from Geraldton and the Mid West of WA, A Fugitive from Justice is a must read." (thanks GFHS!)

We'd like to pay tribute to Inside History and the phenomenal job they've done of sharing Australian history, heritage and genealogy over the past few years. We're especially thankful for the multiple opportunities they've given us to reach out to broader and new audiences. The good news is that Inside History will continue online in different ways and we encourage you to join us in following them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

We would also like to thank the great group of volunteers who helped research the bushranger and uncover new information that contributed to the article. In many ways 2017 is the year of the bushranger... but more on that a little later!
