Hi, my husband Michael and our two daughters Melissa and Kristy are direct descendants of Major Elrington. We would love to know when the next Majors Creek Music Festival will be on as we and maybe Michael's two brothers would be keen to attend.


Quiet lazy Sunday gave me the opportunity to read up on the history of Majors Creek. It sure is wonderful to think that part of me is linked back to my grandmother who was born in Majors Creek. Her name was Aureen Camage and her grandparents were William Camage Jnr and Annie Susanah Camage (née Baumgardner) ... Annies Headstone is in the Majors Creek Cemetary aged 89 years which I found today on the Internet ... So I am hoping to make a visit to Majors Creek soon to remember the very place that I took my darling Nanna back to when I was a young girl ... So she could reminIsce her young days. I remember the pub on the corner... So I will return with my children soon and enjoy a cold drink..and hope to find more on the Camage history family tree :-) ... Till then ... Cheers ....Maxine

Love your site and like the content you have sourced. My name is Tony and I set up a similar site at for the tomboye area, where the nerriga road crosses the mongarlow river.

Do send me an email and perhaps we can co- operate on some content and cross promotion.

Have just read about the opening of a gold mine at Majors Creek. I came to several "Picnics" back in the 60's as a child, while my grandparents caught up with relatives. I wasn't interested in family history then. My Stuart ancestors were mining gold there from 1852-53. My maternal grandparents and their parents were all born at Major's Creek. I am also descended from Wiggins, Keytes, Weatheralls,
Bells, Lewis' and Barnetts and related to all the families who married into those families. I love to wander through the cemetery and realise I know all those families and how they fit into mine. Long may Majors Creek prosper!!!

What a marvellous weekend in the life of our village. It was the 150th Anniversary of the Annual New Years Day Picnic. Decendants of our pioneering families and their families came
together from far and wide to reminise and join in the festivities. Our thanks go to those who worked hard to make it the success it was. May this tradition live on in the village for years to come.

What a magical place is Majors Creek!I am a descendent of the Jury Family and the family home that they lived in still stands on the corner of Araluen and Larmer Street.I have been following the mining issues with fear and trepidation wondering what it all means for this beautiful town. The place where once a year throughout my childhood through to teenage years my family travelled to.The same friendly faces year in year out.Thanks for the memories that are kept alive by websites like this.

great to see a website about the happenings in Majors Creek, home of my forefathers.

I will post a blog on my visit to Messines to trace the footsteps of our relative Thomas John Cook who lost his life at Messines in 1916. I traced his last days and the position of his demise.He has no known grave and is listed on the Menin Gate. I believe that Messines Cemetary is his last resting place which I will clarify later.
