Welcome

Where are We?

We now have two venues, one for our library and one for our meetings. See above details.

Our Research Library

Members are on duty every 2nd and 4th Wednesday between 1pm and 4pm to help members and public inquiries and to assist with family research.
Ask one of our volunteers how to join or click here for a Membership Application Form.

Our Library Holdings

We have an ever growing library of resources which includes DVDs, CDs, Cemetery Transcriptions and Registers, Newsletters, microfiche and much more. Browse our catalogue and have a look at our publications for sale to see the extent of our library and what is coming up next. Don't forget Dawn Cowley's Unwanted Certificate Service. See her page to see how this service could work for you. To also see the background behind the original concept of this service, read our newsletter #146.

Towns of Mid Gippsland

The Mid Gippsland Family History Society supports family history research in the 5000 square kilometre region around Morwell in the Latrobe Valley of Victoria. This is a region with five or so large towns and many smaller settlements. Many towns and localities have disappeared due to the vagaries of gold mining, forest reservation, dam construction or administrative whim and no longer appear on modern maps. This listing covers both the modern and the forgotten towns. Find the listing here.

Other Local Resources

The Moe City Library is one of four libraries in the Latrobe City and has an extensive range of local and family history including the holdings of the ex-Yallourn Library which was donated to the Latrobe City Library and is now located at the NEW Moe City Library.
