Hello Teresa,Joy, Lesley and List,
>I have been wondering about this too, maybe the better weather has
encouraged everyone to tend their gardens.<
"Yes, the gardens keep a'growin
and the lawns they need a'mowin!
But good old P.J. List
keeps the Listers coming round!"
Great to see the List back "On-air"... I started to wonder too!
Thanks Lesley for your great input! Despite "Bigpong", you always come home the winner! A good List never dies... :)
I am still sifting through "lost" email Teresa, so please excuse my late response and being a bit "over the top!"
The PJ List has never been 'off air'. The main problem being that Bigpond
was down....and I am only now receiving some emails posted to the List on

As this list is so helpful I was wondering if someone can help me. My Grandfather while not a convict did breack the law - he was charged with vagrancy in Sydney, 1905 at age 11. He was sent to somebody called Snedden at New Lambton which I gather is near Maitland. Can some kind soul please tell me who this Snedden person was, why young boys were sent to him by the courts and what was at his property at New lambton. Any assistance would be most welcome.
