Library Renovations cause change of plans
I have just received a phone call from Moreland Council, informing me that the Mayors Room will not be available for the Brunswick history meetings till the end of the year. I took it upon myself to immediately make a booking in Bridie O'Reilly's Irish Pub (the former Sarah Sands Hotel) for the 1st Saturday of each month April through to December, from 1.30 p.m. till 4.00 p.m. approximately.

Can you help?
The Brunswick Community History Group is interested in collecting and publishing local history stories.
We often get requests for information about great-grandparents or other family members which we cannot supply, but we are happy to publish whatever information the person researching his or her family history has already found out, in our quarterly magazine 'Fusion'. Quite often this has led to further information or even contact with long lost family or friends.
