My ancestors came to New South Wales on boats from the British Isles and Western Europe in the 19th Century.
As their families grew in size they clustered themselves around various towns. You can still find Schwagers in Gunnedah and Wee Waa, while a few Alchins still live in Gilgandra.

and these towns:
