I want to search the archive myself

Visit us at the court house in Forest St (Wednesdays 10am-4pm, Feb-Nov). Our volunteers will be happy to help you.

We may also be able to arrange for you to visit local people or sites related to your search.

No appointment is necessary, but an email or phone call to us before your visit would be appreciated.

Members can search the archive for free. For non-members, a $30 fee applies.

I'd like you to search for me

Please send your request using our research form.

If it’s a family history enquiry, please include copies of information you already have. This will prevent us sending you duplicate material.

When we receive your request and research fee, we’ll send you an initial printout of all the references relating to your request.

We’ll also create an indexed family history folder relating to your request, providing a secure back-up for your material and a resource for other researchers.

Research fee: $30 ($35 if overseas).
