Hi everyone, My name is Melissa and I am after any information that anyone may have regarding the Welsh/Mason family. I have been told that my great grandmother Gladys Eva May Mason grew up in and around Werris Creek and Quirindi areas. I know that the Mason family lived near the Daley's opposite the river going out of town and Gladys worked as a cook at the Railway Motel.

My grandmother Barbara Cambridge (born Williamson - daughter of Gladys) often visited Roy Mason and family regularly when I was a child. Nan would tell stories of growing up and visiting Werris Creek, watching movies under a tarp with other family members outside the community hall which has lead me to believe that we are Aboriginal. Later in life I tried to talk to my nan about this however she would shut me down, simply saying we don't talk about that so I never really pushed.

As an adult I have traced my family tree but still have not found any connections. I have always felt a strong connection to country and other Aboriginal peoples and I would like to be able to confirm this and truly connect with my mob and teach my children.

I hope someone hear will be able to at least point me in the right direction.

Thanks, Mel
