Thanks to Society Treasurer, Peter Stehn, for permission to post this article from the last issue of the Society Newsletter below.

Excellent progress has been made adding articles of our
Intranet-based Historical Encyclopedia, KUPEDIA
(accessed via the prominent link on the home page of our

KUPEDIA now has more than 145 separate articles
available for browsing or for historical research.  Most of
these articles are from early editions of our journal, The
Historian dating from 1973 to the early eighties, but articles
from other sources are also included.  Eventually we hope
to include all locally sourced articles from The Historian,
Newsletters, and other sources such as biographical files.
KUPEDIA has a comprehensive search facility that
allows you to quickly locate articles relevant to your research,
such as:
• The Lane Cove shark tragedy.
• The first post office in Gordon and what was the
connection to J.G Edwards?
• Who was J.G. Edwards?
• The naming of the railway stations on the North
Shore railway line.
• Horse racing in Ku-ring-gai.
• Plus many other topics, too numerous to mention.

The search facility will display relevant results in a way
very similar to Google, with a clickable link allowing instant
access to the article itself.  All articles are fully text

Check-out KUPEDIA the next time you’re in the rooms.
You will be surprised at the wealth of information it contains
