This is a brilliant book.
SO many references to so many people.
It is very easy to use as a reference guide & you never know who you might find you are related to.
Even if you are not and you want an insight to people of Australian notoriety, you will find this a very interesting book to catch up on your Australian history of people.
Well worth the read.
