The Society's Journal: The Historian
The Historian, which began publication in 1972, contains articles on Ku-ring-gai history. Over the years the type of article has varied considerably. Most of these journals have been indexed; a copy of the index is accessible below. It is a valuable resource for anyone commencing research on the history of Ku-ring-gai.
Recent editions of The Historian have traced the origins and development of major land grants, the built heritage, the people who lived in the homes and their family histories. Areas covered include Roseville, Lindfield, Killara, Gordon, Pymble, St Ives, Turramurra, Warrawee and Wahroonga.
The Historian is published by the Society each year based upon research undertaken by members of the Society, guided by an editorial group that advises and guides the research by individual members. If you wish to participate in this research, contact Lorna Watt or a member of the committee.
Each year the current issue of The Historian is provided free of charge to members of the Society and to those joining the Society up to and including February each year. Members who join after February receive the new edition of The Historian when it is published, usually in November or December.
Past editions of The Historian are available for sale from the Society.
This index covers all editions of the Ku-ring-gai Historical Society journal The Historian to and including the 2017 edition (Volume 46.1).
