History Index

Local newspapers and council minutes from 1900 to 2003

The Local Studies Collection of Sutherland Shire Libraries has an extensive historical subject index covering the period 1900 to 2003. For many years, Library staff have created index cards for topics of interest from our local newspapers, Sutherland Shire Council meeting minutes and other local sources, including biographical material and obituaries. Each index card may contain one or more references to newspaper articles or council minutes; you might even find a council minute and a newspaper reference included on the same card. Searching this collection is a great way to start learning about the history of the Sutherland Shire. 

We're looking for volunteers to help improve this collection while learning about the history of the Sutherland Shire
