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.
