I am conducting a search for descendants who are interested in a reunion to celebrate the 160 year anniversary of the arrival at Geelong on 13th January 1853 of the Dutch barque ‘Zes Gezusters’ - ‘Six Sisters’.
It is hoped that the reunion will be held at Geelong on Sunday 13th January 2013. Location to be advised.
If you are unable to attend, I would greatly appreciate any information, stories, etc that you have about your family's voyage, to include in the proceedings on this special day.
