Description
 
Almanacs are a valuable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history.

Set out in a similar way to Moore's earlier Almanacs, this edition firstly covers information relevant to New South Wales, which consists of a calendar, gardening information, astronomical details, as well as Civil and Political Register (which lists hundreds of office holders names together with their position), the Commercial and Economic Register which provides the names of various consulates, as well as banks, and other companies like insurance and railways. The Religious and Other Societies lists the various churches and groups in New South Wales together with the church leaders of each denomination.

The 'General Information' section, covers topics such as the Royal Family, various statistics, occurrences - which covers events happening between 1 July 1855 to 1 July 1856 and includes all sorts of anecdotes. The Regulations and Laws are also covered, as is the 'Useful Extracts' section.

This product provides a great tool for researching New South Wales history making information that is difficult to find easily accessible on CD.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
