FINANCIAL REPORT:
$671 takings from Blacksmith Shop since November meeting. $136.45 was passed to be paid which included $80 for a new muffler for the butcher van and $10 for Merv Presser re petrol for the engine.
BLACKSMITH SHOP:
* Objectives for Doddridge Shop maintenance:
- In regards to the water problem Ron to see Sam Hosking and Bill to check with Paul Mariani as to the fixing of the gutters and the possibility of water being diverted into the old well at the back of the shop.
* Paul advised Bill that no nibbles for his proposed land sale at the back of the shop have been received so he may take it off the market in a few weeks if the sale looks unlikely. This will solve the problem of moving the shed if that happens.
* Jason Ludwig, 14 year old is interested in blacksmithing.

OTHER BUSINESS:
* Bill to see if Ian has the Gawler Park video which is to be returned to Bill Sibley.
* It was noted from a recent television series on SBS called “Who Do You Think You Are?” that media personality, Ita Buttrose’s great grandfather is buried in the old Angaston Cemetary on Hannay Crescent. William Buttrose died July 15, 1886 aged 37 and he was a Police Trooper at Echunga, Morphett Vale and Angaston.
Also Australian sporting icon, Cathy Freeman’s story begins at the home of her mother, Cecilia Sibley, when she learns that her parents were banned from leaving an Aboriginal settlement in 1963 to visit family members for Christmas. As she delved deeper, Freeman discovered her paternal great-grandfather, Frank Fisher Senior, was a Light Horseman in World War I. Freeman, who retired from athletics in 2003, said her tattoo was intended to be a statement about loving yourself but it has taken on a powerful new meaning since she took part in the program. It is one of several moments of revelation for Freeman, who also learns that on her mother’s side, she has both a Chinese great-great- grandfather, Tommy Ah Sam, and a British great-great-grandfather, George Charles Sibley. Sibley was an English dairy boy who immigrated to Queensland in search of a better life in 1883. Freeman said determination, pride, and a strong sense of self are among qualities she shares with her ancestors but her sporting prowess comes from her father’s side.
It is not known if the Sibley’s are related to the Angaston Sibley’s.

Prior to the meeting members met at the Tanunda Museum at 7.30 p.m. They were given a brief history of the formation of the Barossa Valley Archives and Historical Trust by Don Ross and Reg Munchenberg and the eventual purchasing of the former Tanunda Post Office for use as a museum. The society was formed in 1963 and were lucky to have some Tanunda houses and wills bequeathed to them over the years which enabled them to purchase the old Post Office in the 1960’s and historical items over the years. One of their prize possessions is a map they have had made up of Germany and surrounding countries which details all of the towns in that area where the German and early settlers came from before they moved to the Barossa area. After the talk members viewed upstairs and downstairs the various old time articles. After that old photographs and newspaper clippings relating to Angaston were viewed. An interesting map/layout of the Angaston Railway Station and surrounding railway land was also viewed. The hosts have been kind enough to give the APHS some copies of certain articles for our own collection. Bill Gransbury gave a vote of thanks to the hosts and then members adjourned next door to the Heuzenroeder building which was kindly opened up by Ian for a short meeting.

BUSINESS ARISING:
* Web Page - Keenan Hopkins described some of the problems having the A&PHS web page on the community webs page coming up on the first page when Googled. The domain Angaston.com is also ‘owned’ by a private individual. It would be best to get The Barossa Council to apply to ‘purchase’ the domain name rather than the A&PHS. A link to A&PHS through the Angaston Management Group web page would be a good idea as well. At this stage the minutes can be sent to Keenan and he can update them onto the community webs page. Also when doing a membership drive next time, space for members to write their email on would be a good idea and then everyone interested can have the minutes and other notices emailed to them from time to time.
