Shire of Alexandra Civic Leaders history

A new book has been launched this month on the 150th anniversary of the Shire of Alexandra, about 90 kms north east of Melbourne, which was proclaimed on September 3, 1869.

The e-book which can be downloaded from the Murrundindi Shire Website features a biography of each civic leader from 1869 through to 1993, many are well detailed and include a photograph.

The project is described as follows: “This is a living document produced as a community project in conjunction with the Sesqui-Centenary of the township of Alexandra, around which the old Shire of Alexandra was centred. Corrections and additions will be gratefully received and will be included in future updates to this electronic eBook.”

Congratulations on all those people involved in this project which should be of great interest to local historians, family history researchers and the wider Murrundindi Shire Community.
