ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
In compiling this Burns History some of the information came from our own family records and
recollections, but the greater input, particularly the early historical content, was obtained from the
resources and records of organisations and Societies and other published material mentioned herein.
I would like to acknowledge and thank Russ Haines and Members of the Ringwood and District
Historical Society who unearthed the many photographic records of early Ringwood and the various
articles related to the Burns family. I also thank the society for authorising the use of a number of
relevant photographs, some of which appear in Hugh Andersons Book - Ringwood - Place of Many
Eagles.
Early information of the Burns family was also obtained from the Mansfield Historical Society and the
Jamieson Historical Society and I thank the volunteer staff of both organisations for their help.
