This is not a bibliography for the Geelong region but is a good starting point for those looking for books relation to people and places in the area.  These are the books currently in the Book Indexing Project.  Please feel free to suggest books which you think should be indexed and therefore should be added to this list - the books MUST relate to the Geelong District.  Preference should be given to books which have NO index.  Instructions and more details are on our Project page.

  • Submit a paid Research Request to a relevant society in the region
