Aboriginal Protection Board - Daniel Baldwin
« on: Friday 20 August 21 08:49 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help me....I have found a reference to Daniel Baldwin absconding from Gooli Station, Mullaley in 1923--  He would have been born in 1906 as he is recorded as being 17 years of age - half caste aboriginal and as a ward of the Aborigine protection Board.   How do I find out more about him - every site I have tried has led to a dead end.  I am researching the Baldwin family and I believe some Baldwins lived in this area (Coonabarabran etc.). Any suggestions would be most welcome

majm, thank you for your list of suggestions.  I have tried them but I am afraid I am not much good at navigating my way through this technology.  I appreciate your suggestions and will try again later when my head is a little clearer.
