We will be celebrating National Family History Month which kicks off this Thursday, August 1, at Ku-ring-gai Historical Society. The National Family History Month website has listings of events from all over the nation but also lists events in areas not far from Ku-ring-gai. Peruse the list and you may find something to suit your interests.

Visitors are always welcome at our General and Family History Group Meetings. Dates and times for these can be seen on our Calendar. For other events on the Calendar please contact the Society to see if there are vacancies.

Special events that have been organised for National Family History Month at our Society are two Scanning Days on  Monday 19 August and Friday 23 August from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm in the research rooms.

Please bring along your old Ku-ring-gai photos with a focus on “The people of Ku-ring-gai and where they lived”.

We’ll have a team of volunteers in the rooms to scan them for you.

You’ll get your precious photo(s) preserved in a digital format and at the same time make a contribution to the knowledge of the local area and its people.

You never know, the act of sharing might even lead to connections with other family members.

Bring a USB stick to take your high resolution images home with you.
