GENERAL COMMENTS FOR THIS NEWSPAPER

Prior to 1985, death and funeral notices were published seemingly at random throughout the paper, without a clear heading of "Death Notices" or "Funeral Notices". Obituaries were rarely headed "Obituary". We have indexed those we have found.

Following the regular issue of Saturday 13 November 1915 (Vol LII, No. 39), a further issue was produced, incorrectly dated "Saturday 14 November 1915", but with no Vol No. in the masthead. The subsequent regularly-scheduled issue, on Wednesday 17 November, was numbered Vol LII, No. 40.

The issue for 6 July 1965 has some pages dated 7 July 1965.

The issue for Friday 22 October 1965 is dated 23 October 1965.

The issue for Friday 3 December 1965 is dated 4 December 1965.

The issue for Friday 3 July 1970 is incorrectly dated Friday 5 July 1970.

An index to births, deaths, marriages and obituaries in the "Kiama Independent" 1863-1919 has been published on microfilm by the Kiama Family History Centre.

A sister paper, the LAKE TIMES, is a recent addition to the Weston stable. It is also published weekly, on Wednesday. The same death notices are published in common in both papers.
