Almanacs are a valuable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history.
Set out in a similar way to Moore's earlier Almanacs, this edition begins with information relevant to New South Wales - a calendar, gardening information, astronomical details, a civil and political register (listing hundreds of office holders names with their position). The commercial and economic register provides the names of various consulates, as well as banks, and other companies like insurance and railways. The religious and other societies lists cover the various churches and groups in New South Wales together with the church leaders of each denomination.
The 'General Information' section, covers topics such as the Royal Family, various statistics, events occurring between July 1855 to July 1856 and all sorts of anecdotes. The regulations and laws are also covered and there is a 'Useful Extracts' section.
This product provides a great tool for researching New South Wales history making information that is difficult to find easily accessible on CD.
