The RESEARCH CENTRE will be open to visitors on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10 am and 12 noon, or at other times by appointment. If you are researching your family history, it is best to contact us before you visit, as it often takes time to locate information. Emails preferred.
HISTORIC WORSLEY COTTAGE will also be open for visitors following the extensive year-long renovations.
Hours: Tuesdays & Thursdays 10 am - 12 noon and Sundays 2 pm – 4 pm.
Our COTTAGE GARDEN (sections of which were removed during the renovation) is still a work in progress, but our volunteers are working hard to re establish it.
Our experienced researchers are ready to discover your unanswered family mysteries.
To assist with our search, please send an outline by email of any information that you have already compiled. For example:
Note: Please let us know if you have already used the TROVE website in your research.
Personal Research Visits
If you prefer to visit our archives, please advise of your plans well in advance by email, including as much detail as possible. This will allow us to provide you with any available information on your visit. Tracing personal histories can be difficult and time-consuming; therefore, we regret that we cannot offer a 'while-you-wait' service.
There are no set fees for family history research, as we cannot guarantee the volume of family information that may be uncovered. Instead, as our researchers are volunteers, we ask that you donate towards our running expenses.
Please be patient while we do our best. There is often a queue of requests, and the best possible search can take time.
