Land and Parish Maps

To help you in this search of parish maps go to my parish map sketch to find out some parish names and locations.

Local Newspapers
A life events index is being compiled from both the Molong Express and the Molong Argus. The index is only partly completed and can be searched for family names. Currently a sample from the 1901 Molong Express death index can be viewed by clicking here or write to the research officer at the address below.

There are over 1,500 hard copy issues of the Molong Express held by the Society. Most of the early years are only intermittent issues. It was not until Mr J. W. Horsfield began his extensive binding project in 1971 that regular issues of the newspaper were kept for historical use by the Society.

Access to Molong Newspapers
The Molong Express has been microfilmed by W. & F. Pascoe Pty. Ltd. Imaging. And can be viewed at the
State Library of New South Wales.
The Molong Argus has been microfilmed by Gosford Micrographics Pty. Ltd. And can be viewed at the
State Library of NSW  and Orange City Library.

Molong Cemetery
Transcription records of cemetery headstones are held by Cabonne Council. A small collection of obituaries are being indexed by the Society from the local newspapers, on the pioneers buried in the Molong Cemetery. It is hoped that a photographic record of headstones will be included in the Society's files at a future date. Some gravestones have been photographed as an introduction to this major project. To see one click here.

Research Inquiries
The Research Officer will conduct a search of Society records and include a written report of any findings. A donation of $10AUD will help continue research projects. Extra costs will be billed where appropriate (postage etc.).
