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 was 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 Molong Argus 1896 to 1899 can be viewed here.  Alternatively, visit the excellent website known as TROVE (National Library of Australia).

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.
