Absolutely thrilled on the receipt of this book. It contained so much information relevant to my research on my Great Great Grandfather, especially the details on living conditions, working, wages to name a few. This information took me beyond just a dates and name to a bringing him and his journey to life and was just what I had been searching for.
I had previously purchased a book by Eileen Johnson in Maryborough, Queensland. This book was A4. I made the assumption this purchase would be the same. Sadly I was disappointed. The content is the same, just harder to read. I should have checked small print
