In the Yard – Female Factories Forum

Welcome to the Parramatta Female Factories Forum.

This is the place for all kinds of conversations about female factories, particularly Parramatta. If you have a female factory ancestor – the women, or staff or perhaps ancestors born at the factory then this is the place to share your connection. perhaps you are just passionate about this part of Australian History and these women’s stories then we want to hear from you. perhaps you have news about the current factory sites or you have a connection to the other 12 related female factory sites your conversation is welcome.

This is an informal conversation site, like a back yard or perhaps one of the factory yards.

Don’t forget to check out the female factory story focus on this site for insights into the life of one of the women.
