This society can give assistance in tracing your family history.

Members are offered an extensive collection of genealogical resource material as well as a fund of skill and expertise. The resources listed above are available to members and the Society has reciprocal library rights with other major family history societies in all states except New South Wales. The library is served by volunteers. The Society offers advice on research methods and problems free to members. Non-members seeking assistance pay a minimum fee, plus other charges.
