This CD includes the four books by George Mackay in his popular series of the "Annals of Bendigo". Covering the period 1851 to 1920, they include a vast collection of information gleaned primarily from 'The Bendigo Advertiser' which started in 1853. They record events that happened throughout the period, all in chronological order, giving the reader a quick overview of the highlights of each year.

Meetings, new railway, the hospital, ministry news (including new ministers, elections), the rain of red mud, sports groups and facilities, dense fog, Burke & Wills, fires and floods, portraits unveiled, hospital fair, gas lines, theatres, building works, births and deaths of locals, photographic pioneers, music and drama, tramway, the new newspaper, election bungle, Bendigo Volunteer Rifles, vineyards, local events, openings of new public buildings, the first Old Bendigonians Reunion, St Aidan's Orphanage, the Great War, and of course mining, including mining accidents statistics ... it's all listed here, plus so much more. It includes many
photographs of local people and happenings.

You will find information on thousands of local people and happenings listed throughout this volume. Not only a must for those with ancestors in Bendigo, but also ideal for anyone with an interest in the social history of Bendigo, or Victoria as a whole.
