As the group has grown, it has acquired many resources to help with the search of Genealogy and Family History.
The main aims of our Branch are to provide the resources for people to research their family and social history, and to actively work towards the preservation of our District's records and its social history.
Local transcribed records available in our Library are: Baptism, Marriage and Burial records for most of our District's Churches, School Admission Registers for our District's Schools and Headstone and Burial records for the District's Cemeteries
Our 2012-2013 sub is $30 single, and $40 for 2 people within a household.
You do not have to be a member of our Branch to visit our library, but non-members are charged $5 to use our facilities and postal research is $10 per hour.
Our School Records Officer will answer queries at the cost of $10 for up to 10 names per request.
As we do not have mail facilities at 254 Cameron Street, all enquiries should be sent to the above email address.
Our Library is now in Room 36, upstairs in the old Polytech Building, 254 Cameron Street, Ashburton.
