Newsletters

The Burnside Historical Society produces a quarterly newsletter containing Society news and notices, summaries of meetings and articles of historical interest.

Articles usually have a City of Burnside focus, but more general accounts are also published from time to time.

Individual newsletters are usually 20 pages in length and are sent to all members and a number of other historical societies, the latter on an exchange basis. Copies are also sent to Councillors, the Mayor and selected staff of the City of Burnside.

The Society always welcomes relevant articles that are well researched and well written. The Editor is Judy Brown and any enquiries can be made through our Contact form.

Copies of all the newsletters are also available for viewing in the Local History Room and issues from 2007 are available below.
