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.
