East Gippsland Family History Group

The East Gippsland Family History Group was established over 30 years ago and has amassed a large amount of research material and tools to aid research, including text books, magazines and local histories.

  • The research room has eight networked computers for research of:
  • Births, Deaths and Marriages indexes for most states and territories
  • Latter-day Saints publications
  • Many cemetery indexes and photographic DVDs and CDs
  • Digitised copies of the Bairnsdale Advertiser (our local newspaper) from 1882-1972
  • Microfilm and microfiche of Births, Deaths and Marriages, shipping, electoral rolls and other sources
  • A variety of digital and analogue imaging machines to read and print out from these sources.

Visitors are welcome to use theĀ  facilities, which are open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (except over Christmas) for a small fee. A research service is also available for a modest fee.
