I received this news from the Central Coast Family History Society a few days ago and have
already had a play with it. It is a marvellous resource and I find it a bit of an
improvement on the Ancestry links, although a couple of the pages I've clicked on
didn't download properly. I've never seen a Sands Directory "in the
flesh" so to speak but this new resource gives one a feel for what the original must
be like. It takes a bit of getting used to as each directory has been scanned into
"bite-sized" parts of 61 pages each (rather large files). Each part has its own
index and one soon gets the hang of how to read it.
Congratulations to everyone involved in the project.

Postal directories are a wonderful source to place a person at a certain place at a
particular time. Check out the neighbours while you are at it!!! Website with more info
