Fyansford Scrolls

The question of authorship


it's a question of ancestry

The story of the Fyansford Scrolls will be told as facts are revealed.

Burt Wilks             son of Charles Wilks and grandson of Joseph Wilks

                                 attended 8 years at Fyansford State School with only 2-days absence

A sexist perspective   Throughout the document only men are given Christian names.                                                             Few women are mentioned and then only as Mrs or Miss (surnames only).
