Thames (NZ): Kae Lewis' Book Launch

UPDATE: 13 March 2017. Don't forget the book launch THIS week.
Kae will have books for sale, they are $85 and apparently jam packed with heaps of information that should meet the needs of the family researcher to mining enthusiast.

Announcement today on the TCDC news-page of a book launch during Thames Heritage Festival.

Goldrush to the Thames New Zealand 1867 to 1869 is written by Kae Lewis. Kae is better known to most as The Treasury Webmaster and the creator of the Goldminers Database.

Full details on the book are available at the TCDC link. "With the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of the Thames Goldfield in August, Kae has written a book Goldrush to the Thames New Zealand 1867-1869  as a companion to the website, and there will be an initial print run of just 100 copies available."

There are two book launches scheduled:  at The Treasury on Wednesday March 15th and at Thames Coromandel District Libraries on Thursday March 16th. Copies will also be available at Thames School of Mines Shop and Carsons Book shop.
