Kilmore: Those That Came Before by Heather Knight

Published in 2007 by the Kilmore Historical Society

Through the words of those who were there, you will relive the horror that was “Black Thursday” and experience the fear of murderous bushrangers; be amazed at the passion aroused by the local elections; meet and admire the community spirited men and women that formed the institutions in Kilmore and shaped this community; be delighted in tales of a carefree, simple childhood and journey through the streets of Kilmore during the 19th century.

  1. Good morning – my sister and I are researching our family and believe our great great uncle to be James Mooney. We have found him mentioned on your excellent website and also his wife, daughter and son-in-law mentioned in your book “Those that went before”.

    We are based in Chester (near Liverpool ) England and wondering if you could give us the price of the book and postal charges please, and how we could make payment.
