    37 Parkside

    I am trying to find info about my great aunty and uncle - Lisle and Grace Buckle who lived at 37 Parkside. Lisle worked at Yallourn and I remember visiting them when I was a child ( I'm 63 now!)

    Why is the plan of their house in reverse?

    EX YALLOURN RESIDENTS - please help

    im looking for some information on Eilleen and William Sheilds. they were residents of yallourn. William was charged with murdering his wife Eilleenn in 1948. if anyone has more details to that story id really appreciate some input. my family bought one of the yallourn houses back in 1977-78 and moved it in 3 pieces to trafalgar. i feel there was alot of history captured in the house and would love to find the conection between the house and the Sheilds.
    thank you.

    Me again. I remember Joe Manicola like it was yesterday. Once I had the name, I could put to picture. The other two boy's I don't remember. In the street I now live, next door is a woman who was born and grew up in Drouin, directly across the rode a young husband and wife born and grew up in Mirboo North, seven houses along from my house lives an old woman (her husband passed away last year) named Irene who grew up in Tyers.

    Hi Pauline, I think he may have. The Yallourn North Bus used to come to Yallourn to pick some of us Yallourn guys up. I am pretty sure that he used to travel on that Bus. Stephan Nahorny (back row as well -other end) was also a Yallourn North resident. Joe Manicola was also from YN, as was ? Balsan
