Local and regional histories are a wonderful resource for historians, as they often include the names of community leaders such as business people, local government officers and elected members, and early pioneers of the region.
Local and regional histories provide an insight into the past circumstances and environment of small communities. They give the historian an understanding of how people of the time lived their day-to-day lives. They are of particular interest to family historians who may have ancestors living in the particular community as while they may find no mention of particular names, they will certainly come across issues and events that they certainly experienced.
This CD contains two books on the one CD. Both the Drummoyne and Concord local histories have been combined and are offered at a very special price. These publications commemorate centenaries of local government in Drummoyne and Concord Municipality in 1983, and they contain a numerous photographs and maps of the area, as well as details of early settlers, and mayors and town clerks.
