Genealogy and History enquiries

The Museum can help with local genealogy or history enquiries.  Staff can undertake this research on your behalf for $20 or you can enquire about doing your own research in the Eunice Cullen Library and reference room at $5 per hour.  There is a charge for general photocopying when undertaking own research.

The Museum has over 15,000 records covering four main sections: objects, photographs, archives, and library which includes original documents, cemetery records, out of print books, maps, microfilms and newspapers cuttings.  

Items for purchase include:

postcard size prints - $5

A4 paper size - $5

Digital image - $15

Photocopies can be made of certain items also and an A4 size photocopy charge is $1 per item. 

Get in touch or come and see us at the Museum, we are open 7 days a week.
