The Lemons of Goulburn

I’ve decided to concentrate the next few posts on the Lemon family of Goulburn. There are two good reasons to do so. The first is that I am finding a wealth of information within the newspaper articles listed in Trove. The second is that my great aunt, a Lemon from Goulburn, turned 90 this year and I would like to have it finished for her to see.

I am hoping it will have the added benefit of sorting the family in my own mind. This post will primarily list the members of the family. As I write biographies for each individual, I will update this page with the relevant links. For now, I have added links to obituaries that I have found within Trove.
