Family History Group
FHG members were presented with the Heritage Council 2012 Heritage Heroes Award.
The Kurrajong-Comleroy Historical Society's Family History Group
is co-ordinating a register of family history studies which have relevance to the Kurrajong district.
If you are currently researching a family history where members lived in the Kurrajong district, or you have information, photos, documents or stories that you would like to contribute for other family history studies in the Kurrajong district, then please contact the K-CHS Family History Group.
Meetings The K-CHS Family History Group meets each month. All K-CHS members are welcome. Please contact the co-ordinator for details of upcoming meeting locations and events.
Researching: The Group charges a $25 research fee, which pays for about an hour of research. Beyond this we are happy to discuss arrangements. If you have information or photos you would like to pass on to the Group the fee may be waived. Other charges may apply depending on the amount of printing and research information that is required.
FHG members Wanda and Val study the St Stephen's church register.
The Family History Group is currently working on publishing three new
books. The first book was launched in early 2014 and contains the
records of the parish registers of St Stephen's Kurrajong, St Philip's
North Richmond, St James' Kurrajong Heights, Colo Church, and Sally
Flats Mission Church. There are two further books to follow in this
series. The first book contains Kurrajong records from St Peter's
Richmond up to 1902, when Kurrajong was under the parish of Richmond.
The second book will contain records of early settlers of the district
and research for this book is currently in progress.
Another publication from the group is Honouring Yesterday's Grandmothers . A collection of reminiscences about grandmothers from a gathering held in August 2014. Many old names of the Hawkesbury are included – Horrex, Lenord, Douglass, Turnbull, Greentree, Upton, Dunston, Arndell, Shepherd, Hornery, Davis etc.
