Study Description 

The Alpha and Jericho districts are located in central western Queensland. The study will include information from the first 100 years (1863-1962) of the non-indigenous settlement of this sparsely populated rural area. My aim is to record the names of people who lived permanently or worked temporarily in the towns or on the pastoral stations during this time, and to outline aspects of the area’s history.
