Although it is possible to search thousands of names at no cost on the Avoca website via the on-line search facility (see the FreeFind facility) these represent only a fraction of the names indexed by the ADHS. It could be worth your while to join the Society and, if you are able to visit the Court House, carry out your own research at no additional cost except for copying, scanning, printing, etc., if required. If unable to personally visit the Court House, the Society can carry out research for you. The cost is $15 per hour for members, and $30 per hour for non-members, with a minimum charge of one hour, plus any copying, scanning or printing if required.

Enquiries about membership, or research, or any other aspect of the Society’s activities, may be directed to
