Our Library

Our extensive Library resources are available to Members and Visitors on the regular Open Days, or by appointment.

The Updated Catalogue is now available on-screen in the Library. 

Significant changes have been made to the grouping and shelving of titles particularly for local and interstate burial & cemetery information, UK and Irish references and records, family histories and biographies. 

New Books and References are regularly being added to the collection which includes local family histories and extensive works by the volunteers of the Society. 

The books can be searched using our search tool. Results will contain matches from within our regular indexes and the library.
