Need help with starting your family tree? Are you stumped with locating an elusive ancestor? Our Libraries can help! We will take you through our records and advise on potential sources of information.
Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre has research material to guide beginners and experienced people to trace their family tree. There is no charge to use the Family History Collection.
We have research material to guide beginners to trace their family tree as well as the more experienced. There are over 4,000 books, 20,000 microfiche, 700 microfilms and 200 CD-ROMs to help budding and experienced family historians including various kinds of records and archives.
Our Family History Workshops take place at Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre.
This five-session introduction to family history will show you how to begin with yourself and work back through the generations, looking at different sources of information that you may already have but may not be aware of.
Bookings are essential for this workshop.
Cost: $4 per person per session.
These special research collections include information on our history and geography. The collection is housed in the Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre and is available for use in the library only. Our staff at the Reference desk can provide assistance with using the collection, but they can't do the work for you!
