Family history


Want to trace your ancestors?

Come visit the Family History Room at HJ Daley Library at Campbelltown.

There you will find Australian Births/Deaths/Marriages, Assisted Immigration Records, Unassisted Immigration Records, Cemetery and Burial records and more. These records can be found in our books, microfilm and microfiche collection.

We also have computers set aside for online Family History research including free use (within our libraries ) of the databases:

These databases can be used at any of our branch libraries.

Please note: library staff can help with catalogue searches, finding books and other resources, and will show you how to use the various machines (microfilm readers, for instance), but unfortunately cannot do the research for you.

Research assistance

Family History volunteers are here to help at H.J Daley Library from 10:00am - 12:00 noon Mon-Sat.

Also helpful in your search may be our recently acquired database covering various Australian historical newspapers from 1831 to 2000. It can be used here or from home with your Campbelltown Library card.
