History Week Celebrated at Blayney and Orange

Guests gathered at Blayney and Orange Libraries (Pam pictured signing books) on Thursday to join in History Week celebrations with author and family historian Pamela J McGlinn. This year's theme for the History Council of NSW's History Week was Faces in the Street that shaped our past and present. Pamela McGlinn is a direct descendant of Henry Warburton and Mary Seaton, well known names in the Blayney and Spring Hill districts. After researching her family history she was so fascinated by their story, Pamela wrote a fictional account of their pioneering struggles titled A Distant Dream.
