Welcome

Since 1985 members of our society have enjoyed meeting others who are researching their family history, no matter where their ancestors lived.


Our Research Library is located in the Local Studies/Family History Room, Port Macquarie/Hastings Library, Cnr Grant & Gordon Streets, Port Macquarie. Members are on duty to help with research enquiries on Tuesday & Wednesday from 10am to 3pm.


The general Family History resources are always available for use during library open hours. Members must produce their current society membership card to the on duty librarian to obtain the key for access to the society's locked cabinets.

General meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of each month (except January) at 1.30pm in the MacAdams Music Centre, Gordon Street, Port Macquarie. MacAdams Music Centre is behind the Olympic Pool opposite Players Theatre and has off-street parking with wheelchair access.   Enter via main door from 12.30pm.  Entry is $2.00 which includes afternoon tea.  Visitors are always given a warm welcome.   

The Research Support Group meets on the Wednesday following the General Meeting from 1pm to 3pm in the Technology Room of the Library. Check dates on our Calendar page.


To contact us with a general inquiry please phone

0475 132 804.  If we are unable to take your call please leave a message.

a port to the river we had been tracing from Sea View Mount "     John Oxley - October 1818
