With gold first discovered in 1851 by the wives of two farmhands in the Bendigo Creek, word soon spread and so did the population. By the time of the 1861 census Bendigo had a population of over 13,000, and at the time of the 1901 census, Greater Bendigo's population was over 46,000.

The rapid growth of Bendigo - which is now the third largest city in Victoria - has seldom been rivalled in all history in any country. Originally known as Sandhurst, the city grew quickly out of the Victorian goldrush and became established as a major provincial hub and minor financial centre. With the growth came elements of stability and permanency. It was not until 1891 that the city's name was changed to Bendigo, in honour of the bare knuckled boxer, William "Abednego"; Thompson, whose name had been lent to the creek
where gold was first discovered.

This Compendium contains 12 books and 1 large map all relating specifically to Bendigo and the surrounding districts on a two CD set. Not only is it much easier to use, but also by buying it as a set, you save $$$$ off the price of buying each title individually!

    Posted by Michelle Borserio on 24th Nov 2019

    Firstly I am going to state - If you are serious about your family history THEN this is the tool for you!!!
    It is a MUST!!!

    It has 2 CD's with easy to use instructions & it covers Bendigo, Eaglehawk & many more surrounding areas, over a large span of the early period of these areas(1800's - 1900's). A terrific and needed reference tool.
    - Covering History, Electoral Rolls, Annals etc and just so MUCH more.

    It has 12 books & a map. All you need is Acrobat reader ( if you don't have this it is free to download) Buying this is an extremely cheap option as a terrific discounted price.
    You can search from Basic to Advanced and can bookmark pages as well with easy to understand instructions.
    Everything you need or want to know is covered & you will be here for months if not years taking it all in OR just search and jump to the area that interests you.

    A 100% for the person/s who put this all together and as I stated - A MUST - for the family history researcher.
