A TUESDAY TALK - BOOKS IN MY LIFE In partnership with the State Library of South Australia
Speaker: Janet & Suzanne Scarfe Tuesday 7 December 2021 at 11.00am-12.00pm Cost: FREE Hetzel Lecture Theatre, Institute Building, State Library
Anlaby is the home of the oldest Merino Stud in South Australia, settled in 1839. Janet Scarfe is a professional historian whose research interests include family history and biography, Australian army nurses in World War One and Two, and controversies around the ordination of women in the Anglican Church in Australia. Suzanne (Sue) Scarfe is a genealogist with a keen interest in family history. They are the great grand-daughters of Hugh and Margaret Campbell, the first of three generations to live and work on Anlaby. Sue began the project with her genealogical research and Janet added her historical skills. The result is a new book The Campbells of Anlaby, 1860-1940 (published this year) a social history of three generations of Campbells and the communities in which they lived and worked.
