House history

Are you interested in exploring the history of  your house ?
Perhaps you live in a heritage area ? Or you live in an older style house and you would like to know more about the history of the house ? Not sure where to start ?
The New South Wales Land and Property Information website is a great place to start - especially if you don't have copies of the original property deeds.
Click on Historical searching under " I want to learn about" . There are heaps of searching tips and links.
New South Wales State Records is another fantastic resource that has ideas and advice about researching the history of your property.
The local studies collection has Parish maps and the Wagga Wagga City Council Valuation and Rate books for 1908 through to 1931 are on microfilm. Come in and book the microfilm reader to start your research today!
