Thinking of joining a family history group?

Welcome to the SEFHG website.

There are many benefits to becoming a member of a family history group, either in the area you live or where your research interests lie. Family History groups such as ours, which is the only one in Limestone Coast, provides access to not only local records but national and international information, but more importantly advice and assistance in how to go about researching your family history. Most people don't know where to start but a few quick hints to get them on the right track and a demonstration of how to find information is usually all that is needed to get them enthused.

Visitors to these pages will find information on family history in our region, including many local databases, books to purchase and relevant websites to visit Why not consider becoming a member and taking advantage of our modest membership rates. This will give you free access to all physical and digital records we hold, whose titles you can search in the catalogue. Membership will also allow you to learn from the free courses we run, join us on excursions, attend general meetings with interesting speakers and receive the quarterly newsletter and monthly E News. On top of this members are entitled to 2 hours free research carried out on their behalf, each year. You will find membership information and forms on the Members Page. We look forward to seeing you in person or hearing from you, if you live out of our region.
