Our History room volunteers have created indexes to several of our most popular Local History books that were published without an index. The following links will take you to those indexes, so you can search to see if a particular title will help you in your research. All books are held in our Local History collection. In most instances there will be a 'Reference' (Not for loan') copy available in the Local History Room. If a second copy is held, it will be available for loan. Check our for availablility http://sapln.ent.sirsidynix.net.au/client/alexandrina, or to place a hold.
