Hi everyone,
I'm hoping to find out if there is any truth in a
family story that my 2nd great grandfather, Peter
FULLERTON, joined Burke and Wills for part of their
expedition in 1860. I have checked the Victorian State
Library web site which lists the names of those who
applied to join the expedition
(http://victoria.slv.vic.gov.au/burkeandwills/archives/eagerexplorers/explorers.html)
and Peter's name is not there.
I don't really know where I should look next, any
ideas?

The story is that he joined them when they came
through his hometown, and possibly went with them as
far as Menindee.

Thanks,
Aillin
