Abbreviated placename "JIMC" in Victoria
« on: Tuesday 29 August 17 16:01 BST (UK) »
I was wondering if anyone knew where "JIMC" is in Victoria? Found the abbreviation on the Victorian BDM index.

There is also a Jimmy Creek.  May not be abbreviated to 'JIMC' though.

Thanks bitzar. I suspect it's Jim Crow Creek as that place is near where I know the family ended up. But you're right, could be either.
