The Royal Australian Historical Society has awarded the Snowy Alpine Heritage Association a grant of a thousand dollars, for research into local men who took part in the 1916 Men from Snowy River March.
Local historian, Dr. Rosemary Stewart-Beardsley, is encouraging anyone with information on ancestors who took part in the march to get in touch, and it's anticipated that this information will then be published in time for the World War One centenary in 2014.
The Delegate Progress Association are undertaking a similar project, and Dr. Stewart-Beardsley says that the groups are cooperating.
Anyone wishing to help can contact the Association through
