The Newman Chronicles

As described in the History page of this website, the first NNS Chronicle was produced by Tony Neman in October 1986.

In his introduction to this first edition, Tony wrote:

The Newman Chronicle will be of interest to Newmans, and Newman kin who desire a greater knowledge of their family history and genealogy. I hope to publish successive issues at half-yearly intervals with at least part of the content being contributed by the readership.

In addition to publishing selections from accumulated Newman historical material, the Newman Chronicle will provide a platform for genealogical enquiry. To maintain a balanced format, items of a general nature, some in a more reflective vein, will be included. Again, the readership can assist here by sulxnitting photographs, family trees, family recollections, and general genealogical gleanings, or by offering conxnents or suggestions.

In 1992, the Chronicle was supplemented by a twice yearly Bulletin which continued in production until 2001 when it was superseded by a quarterly edition of the Chronicle. The Chronicle was produced quarterly from then until Jan 2013 with the exception of July 2012 when no issue was produced. Since Jan 2015, when a new editor was appointed, the Chronicle has been published bi-annually..

The complete listing of Chronicles and Bulletins is tabulated below. These are all available for downloading by members of the NNS through a separate password protected page.
