The Bicentennial Dictionary of Western Australians

pre 1829 - 1888
Volumes I - IV

This Dictionary has been scanned by volunteers using everyday technology and is not very searchable but it is a huge asset. We hope in the future to replace it with a fully searchable version scanned with the most sophisticated technology available - but I am sure you will all agree that this is an incredibly valuable interim step.

If you would like to donate to allow the scanning of The Bicentennial Dictionary of Western Australians to happen sooner, please donate above or send a cheque to Friends of Battye Library Inc. PO Box 6143, Swanbourne, WA 6010 or Direct Debit to BSB 016-185; Account 4220-58413 (reference Bicentennial Dictionary.)

Donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.
