About this copy
Following the finding of two old fireplaces of huts at StringyBark Ck in
2002, I shared this information with Kelly researcher Marian Matta. She
informed me she had transcribed the ‘Ned Kelly Seminar Papers 1993’ from
audio tape Compact Cassettes onto her computer. Marian said one talk
given by Ian Jones’s spoke in some detail of him and his son Darren,
plus a surveyor attempting to locate a hut site on the western bank of
the creek as recorded on a 1884 parish map of the area. Ian spoke, if
this hut were ever to be found, it would pinpoint the site where the
police party had camped in Oct 1878.
I believe Marian’s transcript of the ‘Ned Kelly Seminar Papers’ was
issued to ‘The Council of Adult Education’ (CAE) and was printed for
attended audience members only. In 2003, on enquiring for a copy, the
CAE said they had no knowledge of this publication. Marian then gave me
a photo copy and all old floppy discs on which her texts were recorded.
At the time I still had a functional floppy disc drive and was able to
re format the content to PDF, and paragraph the entire document.
As it was not my
document to distribute freely and make the Papers freely available
I thought it best to only make this PDF version available on
request from my Two Huts at SBC webpages.
As fourteen years have passed since it was created its best to
make it available to anyone interested for free download.
