This guide is a must read publication for anyone researching their mining ancestors. It is a great starting place with a description of the various resources available with an area by area guide for both Australia and New Zealand.
 

This publication highlights the wealth of information available to genealogists and family historians looking for their mining ancestors. The guide covers archival and library resources, maps, photographs, newspapers, published works and online resources. In addition it looks at where this information may be located including historical societies and museums, genealogical and family history societies, as well as archives and libraries.

Using examples from her own family history, the author demonstrates what kind of information can be obtained and where to locate similar information on your own ancestors.

Women are often hard to find in colonial records, but sometimes they can be found working and living in mining areas or perhaps as shareholders in local mines. School records can also help to trace the movements of a mining family as the author demonstrates.

This guide is a must read publication for anyone researching their mining ancestors. It is a great starting place with a description of the various resources available with an area by area guide for both Australia and New Zealand.
