Thank you in advance for your contributions. This gofundme has been setup to assist in showcasing the SSR Almanac
a rugby league sporting historical research project by Mark Sivis.
The goal is to document the historical record of the great South Sydney District Rugby League Football Club, the Rabbitohs.
Mark has been researching the history of South Sydney DRLFC since he began as a youth in 1975 and has compiled a wealth of information that spans over 110 years of the clubs history. Dating back to the period as sport began in the city of Sydney.
It started as a hobby and then has grown to something he is very proud of.
The information being collated is beyond what is generally available and will help tell a story not only of the South Sydney Rabbitohs and its 2000 plus players and 6000 plus games but a history of South Sydney is in itself a history of Rugby League in Sydney
This has now moving beyond just being a hobby as Mark sets a goal of putting his research available for all.
