The

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.

Bert!   Bert who?

Burt Wilks                                               son of Charles Wilks and grandson of Joseph Wilks

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

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