The Society founded 1984, aims to encourage and assist members in the study of Genealogy and promote the study of Swan Hill's History and the preservation of Historically significant objects.
We are proud of the level of achievement in the SHG&HS Inc.Our Comprehensive Library includes hundreds of titles in Fiche and Book form and is the envy of many larger centres.
Members are encouraged to submit a 'Wish List' and if funds are slow, may choose to supplement this. Over the years many Members have generously donated to expand the Library.
The Society holds regular monthly meetings with Guest Speakers or topics of interest relating to Genealogy or History. Meetings are held on the second Friday of each month (with the exception of January), at the Swan Hill Regional Library (since September 2001). Entry from rear of building.
Volunteer Members are, during Library Hours, available in our room each Wednesday and Thursday between 10a.m. and 3.00p.m. to assist new researchers.
Other times by appointment with our Librarian Julie Whateley
