Heritage Interpretation Services

Sue Rosen & Associates Consultants can prepare all your heritage interpretation materials and reports for implentation.

In 2011 we prepared a Heritage Management Plan and Interpretation Strategy for the Port Kembla Copper site, and at the other extreme, we undertook research to underpin the interpretation to the public the Murray River Red Gum for the NSW Nationals Parks and Wildlife Service.

From the resources and stories we produced, Parks could create storyboards, videos for YouTube, website development, walking trails, interpretation panels, exhibits, videos and other material for cultural tourism purposes.


Forensic Research in Colonial Records

We are the best forensic researchers in Australia. Tracking through indexes and registers to find the vital data your project needs is our speciality.

Our findings on the existence (or not) of a public road in the Cessnock LGA were adopted by Judge Bryson in the Equity Division of the NSW Supreme Court in Palmisano v Hawse.

At State Records NSW we are particularly familiar with the  Colonial Secretary's Papers, the Surveryor General's papers, Lands Department records, the colonial court records.  

Historic Land Titles and Old System searches are another area of expertise.
