Lynette Silver, Historian, Australian 8th Div.
Ron - From http://www.tovegin.com.au/community/silver.htm
Accomplished local author on a variety of topics, particularly investigative history.
While her investigations include areas further a field than Australia, you can see from the titles and descriptions below that there is VERY much a local community focus. This is evidenced by an article in the Hornsby Advocate, Thursday March 18, 1999 entitled "Finally at rest after life in the hell hole".
