Rydal Family History Sketchbook by Yvonne Jenkins

This book will be of great interest to the family historian whose roots are in and around Rydal, near Lithgow NSW, because the history of each building sketched is told and the occupants named. The names on the headstones in Rydal cemetery are included, as are those on the war memorials, electoral rolls, businesses, hotels and their licensees, schoolteachers and early pupils, railway workers and entries from church registers and from other surrounding cemeteries where Rydal residents names were listed. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards the restoration of the War Memorial Gates at the Showground. Click here for a list of the contents
