The Knox Historical Society Inc. offers a research service for people interested in pioneer family and local history. For $16.00 per hour, our research team will search the collection for information on your ancestors, and will send you details of anything found. We have a large collection of school photographs, including many of the classes which attended some of the 50 schools in the district, and access to an index of land holders in the Parish of Scoresby. This covers the area from Bayswater to Lysterfield and from Wantirna to the Dandenong Ranges, from early settlement.

If you would like to take advantage of this service, please download the research form (pdf) and forward the completed form, with your payment, to Knox Historical Society, PO Box 8124, Ferntree Gully 3156.

Please Note:
The Resource Centre will be closed until further notice.
A limited research service will be available on Sundays from the Museum at
3 Olivebank Road Ferntree Gully 3156.
Enquiries can still be made via email to khs@relics.com
or by phone (03) 9758 6722 (usually an answering machine).
If you leave a message one of our volunteers will get back to you.
