February is full on…

Well we certainly have hit the ground running.. everybody is back and sorted, our first Committee meeting has happened and plans are laid out. The Society has so many things to achieve this year and we are going to need help doing it. So if you enjoy history and know how to research of if you don’t we will teach you.. we need local volunteers to come hang with us and help us with research requests.

We are always looking for indexers to assist us in building our Family Research Program.

Donations of collections is like Christmas to us and we hate to see anything thrown away, so remember if your going through a pile of old records/ photos etc and you have anything that relates to the history and development of the Wide Bay we would appreciate copies of your collections or you can give us the originals and we will ensure they are looked after to the best of our ability.

Michael Cassimaty recently gave us some amazing photos that he took in 1974ish and we will be displaying them shortly on here they are local images and it is always awesome to see the way we were.

But for now its on with the day.. OOHHH DON’T FORGET OUR CEMETERY TOURS START THIS MONTH…. 🙂  CLICK HERE for more information

Goals for 2017

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are ready to hit the ground running in 2017. They say its a year for new beginnings and we would love to know what your plans are for this year.

The Society has such a full on year planned with lots of new information becoming available, our family history software is growing all the time and our own local family tree is well under way. We are hoping to continue building the “Big M” at the rate we did last year and take it to a whole new level..

We are always looking for volunteers/ members so if you have some spare time then why not come along and join us… we have an amazing team that are obsessed with history and will give you some of the greatest leads and tips you will ever find, you will also have access to all our digital records as well as our written ones.

We are back into our cemetery tours in February and we have had some great people keeping on going behind the scenes during the Christmas break.. so as you can imagine when the doors open again on January 17th we will have lots of news and updates for you.. So don’t miss out we will update you on the years activities soon.. 🙂
