Since 1985 members of our society have enjoyed meeting others who are researching their family history, no matter where their ancestors lived.

Our Research Library is located in the Local Studies/Family History Room, Port Macquarie/Hastings Library, Cnr Grant & Gordon Streets, Port Macquarie.  Members are on duty to help with research enquiries -

Tuesday         -     10am  to 3pm
Wednesday   -     10am  to 3pm

The general Family History resources are always available for use during library open hours.  Members must produce their current society membership card to the on duty librarian to obtain the key for access to the society's locked cabinets.
