The Gheerulla community website helped a Darwin man find the missing link in his family tree.  

By viewing the comprehensive cemetery section of the website, the Darwin man was able to trace his family back to early settlement in the Kenilworth, Queensland district. Lenore Meldrum of the Gheerulla Hall Committee said this person discovered that when his family settled in the region, they had mysteriously changed their name.

"There are a number of local myths as to the reason for this name change, one being that the settler himself knew and rode with the Kelly Gang. The Gheerulla Hall Committee is delighted that our community website could provide the link for this family history search."
