Is your ancestor in this list?

James DEW c.1912

The Geelong Football Club needs your help … I’m sure there are many people who don’t realise that their ancestor or relative played for the Geelong Football Club but you could just be the person that the club wants to contact.  We found this photo of James DEW who was President of the Shire of Bellarine.  Unfortunately it’s many years after he played for Geelong [in 1880] and the club would prefer a photo of DEW when he looked about 30 years younger! 🙂  If they can’t find photos of players in GFC uniforms, they will Photoshop appropriate photos into the GFC uniform for the relevant year – I think the Shire President would look a tad old in club colours if this photo was used!

From the GFC web site:

The Geelong Cats are nearing the end of an enormous project.

We have spent the last several years, gathering images of every player who has played with Geelong, since 1877… whether he played 1 game or 300 games.

As of today we have gathered around 1117 images, and we are now only looking for 206 to complete this exciting work.

We don’t expect to get an image of the player in a Geelong jumper. The best style of image is a football team photo, where he is looking straight into the camera. wedding images are also good as they usually show this “face on” style of image. of course, any images will be helpful!

We are looking to complete this work before the end of the year and so, we need these images before 20th December 2014.

If you think you may have a photo of any of the past players listed, please contact:
Mr. Bob Gartland,
Vice President
Chair, Honouring the Past Geelong Football Club

Please have a really good look at the list of names and see if you can identify anyone.  If you have a photo you may be able to help the club with this project.
