Our Library, open every Friday between 12 mid-day and 3-00 pm is staffed by friendly volunteers and contains an extensive collection of material pertaining to Yarram and surrounding areas. We also hold many indexes on Cd-Rom and fiche for Australia as well as over-seas. You can view our Library Collection by clicking the link.
If you cannot make it on a Friday, other times can be arranged by contacting either of the following members.
Our Index of our Early Settlers contains many hundreds of names taken from the Alberton Rate Books and Early Maps showing property runs etc. If you have a interest in the early days of this part of Gippsland then you will most likely find a familiar name listed there and somewhere amongst the library holdings there will likely be found further information to a name. Please stop by our "Members Surname Interest" page. Many of our members are local identities who have ancestors that were early settlers to the area and you may well find a Surname to interest you. There are also of course many Surnames for over-seas listed as well.
We have many Books, Fiche and CD`s for sale covering the local area and its history. The Cd`s comprise cemetery headstones, and plots beautifully photographed and with a full transcription.
Did you or any of your family attend Woranga State School No. 4203 on "Parkside" five miles east of Yarram ? Or perhaps you have some information regarding the school. Please visit the page if you have a interest there.
