GOLDRUSH by A. Finlay Index

Goldrush

 The Journal of Alexander Finlay while on the Victorian Gold Diggings

May, 1852.

This is a very rare little book (only 70 copies were printed) about a journey to the Bendigo goldfields in 1852.  Alexander Finlay  mentioned the names of the Tasmanians that went with him and those he met on the way. 

 I found a hand written copy of the journal at the Archives many years ago in response to St Mark's Press request for me to find and obtained permission of any interesting letters, journals or diaries that they could publish.  I found this copy of Goldrush by A Finlay.

Because not many people would be likely to ever see it I decided to  do an index of the book. It is available in both the Hobart Archives and the Launceston Library for those wishing to follow up on any of the names or places. 

Another interesting Tasmanian story that I found was a letter written by Samuel Guy to his brother back in England. Samuel settled near New Norfolk in 1823.  this was also printed by St Mark's Press, and called Van Diemen's Land Settler. This is also very rare as only 60 copies were printed and like the Goldrush would be in  private hands.
