Research notes

Three boomerangs [25539, 25540 and 25541] from near Harrisville were brought in by Mrs Dezandelles' son, who is studying at the University of Queensland. They were collected by Mrs Dezandelles' mother, Janet Livingstone, around the 1870s and kept by the family until now [Dezandelles source file].
