Book Indexes

In the past many local history books were produced just a brief index or with none at all. For the family or local historian an index is an essential tool in the research process. Our volunteers have undertaken the task of indexing a selection of books relating to the Hill End & Tambaroora district thus saving the researcher many hours of trolling through the publications in search of that gem of information. In most instances they have limited the indexes to family names or locations. If large lists of names were included in the books these were not repeated in the index however an asterisk appears against the bibliographic details of the books listed on our Researching Hill End – Books page.

The following books have been indexed:
