Melton Family History Group Welcome to the
 Melton Family History Group Inc. 

This Website is currently being reworked. (14th September 2012 onwards till further notice)
         

Our group meets on the second Thursday of each month (except January) 6.45PM sharp
in the Meeting Room at the Victoria University Library, Rees Road  Melton South. 3338


Melton Family History Group Inc. was formed in 1994 to satisfy the needs of people in Melton
who were researching their family histories
and who wanted to share their discoveries,
their problems and the expertise they had developed. 
An active group, our members represent the diversity
 that makes modern Australia.

Resources

The Melton Library, in conjunction with Melton Family History Group, has worked towards providing a comprehensive and valuable resource.

An extensive microfiche and CD ROM collection and a wide range of books as well as dedicated computers, enable our members and the public to pursue most avenues of their research locally. 

The collection receives yearly funding and as a result of this, it is constantly expanding.  There are indexes available from the Library for both the Microform & CD ROM collection and the Local & Family History Book collection and these are updated as needed.

MFHG Members at one of  many events which we organise during the year. In this case they stand in front of the relocated Headstones that were removed from the Victoria Market Site. They now comprise the Pioneer Section at Fawkner Memorial Park. We all help each other to find Family Burial sites where required as these are often the source of a lot of Family information. Days like this fulfill the need for a good group experience and especially with the added bonus of deliciously catered meal in the Fawkner Memorial Park Tea rooms.

Membership

Melton Family History Group welcomes new members.  Membership costs $25.00 per year and members receive a  newsletter, Branches, with interesting articles and information on our calendar of Events.  We invite our members to contribute articles to both Branches & to this Website

Member Volunteers are also in attendance in the Local & Family History area at the Victoria University Library on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday of each Month, (Except January)from 10 am to 12 pm to assist others with their Family  History Research
