Family History

What is family history? How many questions do you have regarding your ancestor? Would you like to know not only who they were but also what they looked like? Are you interested in learning of where they lived and the type of house in which they resided? Are you curious about their employment, their lifestyle and the historical, social economic and geographical settings for that period of time?

Involvement in family history research enables questions such as these to be answered. The ever increasing number of people participating in this hobby is a testament to the rewards that can be gained and the friendships that can be made.

Local family history groups do not limit themselves to researching families in their own local areas. Members can be found researching their family origins from areas as diverse as outback Australia to Austria, from Sydney Town to Dublin City, from Jamaica to China and all places in between.
