Streetwise contains the biographies of many of the pioneers of Kandos and gives a history of each of the 40 streets, 25 parks and 18 subdivisions of the town. It includes historical maps, photos and news articles and has a detailed index. If your ancestors are not here you will find clues to discover them. And you will learn about the town in which they lived and worked.
Streetwise was supported by a grant from the Royal Australian Historical Society. It is available from the author via this website and also at Kandos Museum, the Cottage Museum and Kandos Newsagency.

Four things about me. I like reading, writing, researching and living in the country. In particular I like living at Kandos, where we have been for more than a decade. I have deep roots in this part of the country. My mother spent her early life in Kandos. My father was born at Rylstone. My grandparents were pioneers of Kandos and Rylstone. And I was born at Lue - and went to school in Mudgee. The history of this area excites me and I would like to share it with you.
My monthly blogs are posted on the 1st of each month. However I intend taking a six-month furlough from blogging to continue a project that has been sitting on the shelves for too long. Also, after 71 posts and 59 articles I feel a bit stale. I posted my first blog in May 2017.
There is plenty to read on this site. If you are looking for a particular person or subject use the Search function. My last post is scheduled for 1/3/2022.
If you pressed "Follow" and gave your email address, the blogs will be sent to you when I return.
Thank you readers for your interest, comments and support.
