The SHOALHAVEN FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY INC. was formed in 1985 to promote and encourage the study and preservation of family history, genealogy and allied subjects. It is a dynamic society, able to offer to members the use of an extensive collection of genealogical resource material, local, Australia wide and overseas, as well as a fund of skill and expertise.

It is also a friendly group. Members exchange information with each other; those with special skills share their knowledge at workshops and panel discussions such as using computers for family history and in educational seminars in various aspects of family history research.

The Society has a Privacy Policy which governs the way we store and use information. To read this, click this link: PRIVACY POLICY
The Society’s meetings are held at our Research Centre, Greenwell Point Rd Pyree, (see directions under Research Centre). They are held on the first Saturday of the month (except January) commencing at 1.30pm. Some meetings have guest speakers who have expertise in various areas of genealogy and family history. See Diary Dates for details.

The DNA Interest group is currently not meeting. See diary dates if we are able to hold these sessions again.

We are trialing a change to our hours to offer wider opportunities for members to use our facilities. Our Research Centre will be open the 1st & 2nd Thursday of the month, 2nd Saturdays and every Sunday, each day 10am to 3pm. During the months of June, July & August the library will close at 3pm if no one is researching. The Centre is normally closed on the Sunday of Public Holiday weekends. The numerous facilities are available free to members and non members may use the research facilities at a cost of $10 per session with the assistance of the volunteers on duty.

We now offer two kinds of research services for those who cannot get to our centre, the standard one dealing with a specific family or problem or the compilation of a Family Tree for those who would like to know their ancestors but are unable to do this themselves, for more information click here: RESEARCH SERVICE


Especially For Mothers Day, remember her with flowers! 

We are now offering a Remembrance Flower Service for those who cannot visit the Shoalhaven. We will place flowers on a grave in various Shoalhaven cemeteries for you and send you back a photograph to commemorate this. The cost of this service is only $50. For further information and to print the request form, click here REMEMBRANCE FLOWERS. We will also visit a grave and take photos of headstones for you. The cost for two photos is $20. Please contact us for this service.


Are you looking for that special gift for a loved one, why not give a years membership to the SFHS to a family member and then they can do your family history with you or for you. This is a gift which will last all year round. Contact the Society to obtain your certificate for the applicable membership category the recipient falls in.
