Family History Group
FHG members were presented with the Heritage Council 2012 Heritage Heroes Award.
The Kurrajong-Comleroy Historical Society's Family History Group
assists society members and members of the public with their family history research.
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 has published two books based on the registers of St Stephen's church.
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. The first book also contains Kurrajong records from St Peter's
Richmond up to 1902, when Kurrajong was under the parish of Richmond.
The second book was published in 2016 and continues from Volume 1 covering the period 1903-1936.
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.
