Family History Group

Our family history group meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 1.00pm in the Archives at Mittagong. It is an informal self-help group of like-minded family historians where we share our successes and brick walls. We usually have a guest speaker for part of our meeting to discuss an aspect of interest to the group, such as workshops on Trove, scanning and interpreting old photographs, writing family history and biography, understanding shipping records and using online resources. Topics covered in the past include:

  • Family Tree Maker
  • DNA
  • SIX Maps
  • Coastal shipping
  • Aboriginal research sources and strategies
  • NSW Births Deaths and Marriages
  • Trove
  • Ancestry
  • Lesser known online, and often free, resources

Members of the Society are welcome to attend. Please contact the Convenor, Denise Mackey by email:
