This new book Penrith, The Makings of a City by Penrith Librarian Lorraine Stacker is out now. It is well-researched and illustrated and deserves a place on the bookshelf of everyone with family or ancestors from the Penrith area.

Story
Tagline
Genealogist, writer and speaker in Sydney, Australia; author of 'Social Media for Family Historians'.
Introduction
I have a background in psychology and computers and a love of history and when you add all these together the result is genealogy. I want to understand why things, and people, are the way they are, and these answers can only be found in the past.
