About the IDFHG

The Group
The Inverell District Family History Group (IDFHG) was formed in 1984 by a small enthusiastic group of people keen to research local and family history. The Group now has an extensive collection of research material for use by both members and non-members.

New members are welcome – there is no joining fee.
Annual membership fees from 1 July 2010 are $35 single and $45 family.
Note: New members joining during the financial year pay a pro rata subscription fee at the rate of

  1. Single $2.91 per month or part thereof
  2. Family $3.75 per month or part thereof

A copy of the constitution may be obtained by contacting the Secretary.

Membership provides access to our online subscription to ancestry.com and an extensive research library.

In addition, there is the opportunity to contribute to our newsletter and to draw upon the knowledge and experience of other members. Training sessions and information workshops are held from time to time.

Quarterly general meetings are held at our new location, the Inverell Shire  Public Library,  55-59 Campbell St, Inverell, (opposite Turnham Car Park) on the third Saturday of February, May, August and November at 1.30 pm. Visitors are always welcome.

The official journal of the Group is Voices from the Past and is published in February, June and October.
