An inscription inside the register notes that "This book was written up to date all slips on hand at time being included, last number of Registration Slip being 612" (1915).

The book is a calendar index to employees in the Kalgurlie (Kalgoorlie)/Boulder area of the Western Australian goldfields. The earliest registration appears to be on 1 May 1899 when C Carlson was entered. Although the note at the front of the register was written in 1915 entries are listed beyond this date – at least to 16 January 1920 when the name of Claud Ernest Andrews of Hewitt St, Kalgoorlie was recorded as being engaged. Quite a number of entries record the date of leaving as 30 April 1921, and the reason for the discharge being "cessation of work"”.

For each entry the Date engaged, Name of Employee, Address, Name of Friendly Society, Recommended by, Occupation, Transferred to, Accidents, Date of Leaving, and Reason for Leaving or Discharge is recorded. Later entries include the age of the employee. Occupations are varied – labourer, coach painter, shoveller, filler, miner, dustman, assayer, agitator, shift boss, fireman and many more. The reasons of discharge are interesting to read – for example, "grumbling workman", "left to better himself", "enlisted", "killed by falling down main shaft" – what a great source of information that can probably not be obtained elsewhere!

This CD contains high quality scanned images of the original book, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be browsed, enlarged and printed out if required – as the register is handwritten only manual searching is possible.
