BOOK - Sewerage Records: An Untapped Magnificent Resource    [Australia perspective]
By S. Zada
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2010
This edition printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015


Softcover...15.50 (C$)

Sewerage is not something we instantly associate with our ancestors, nor is it a resource that many people have high on their list for checking. By the time you have reached the end of this book, your view on sewerage and its value to our family and local history research should have changed.

One of the major benefits of sewerage records is that they do not discriminate between large mansions and small mining cottages, grand theatres and factories, exclusive private schools and smaller local public schools. Where a public sewerage system has been installed it is all encompassing - our ancestors are on a level playing field.

The information and tips provided relate to sewerage records in Australia and New Zealand, however you can apply the same approach to countries around the world - where a sewerage system has been installed, there will be records.
