  • Survey of Plaques in the City of Burnside

  • The Paddocks Beneath Extended Index. Experience has shown that the index at the back of the book has limitations. This Extended Index includes even the most minute references to people, including all family members – not just the family surname, name of the house and the suburb plus references to maps in the book. Trades and professions of the members are listed with dates of births. Cost $12, copies are available for inspection and purchase at our meetings or by contacting us.
  • A short survey of the activities of the Burnside Historical Society from 1980 to 2013, by R House, 2013
