Feature Expedition

Dundas Municipal Council Meeting Minutes Vol 10 (1940-1944)

Field notesCity of Parramatta

Help us transcribe the fascinating historic meeting minutes of Dundas Municipal Council - incorporated in 1889, amalgamated with Parramatta City Council in 1948.

Dundas was a semi-rural landscape of orchards, farms and plant nurseries until it experienced a post-World War II housing boom.

Tutorials are provided with transcription guidelines and the names of Aldermen.
