As we become interested in researching our family history we get to the stage where we want to go beyond names, dates and events to learn about the places our ancestors lived, played and worked.
Just like Love and Marriage and Horses and Carriages, Family History goes together with Local History.
In our local area The Hornsby Shire Historical Society Inc aims to to encourage the study of the history of Hornsby Shire, to foster an interest in the history of Hornsby Shire, to compile authentic records, and to collect, preserve and exhibit objects which have affected, and will continue to affect, the lifestyle and occupations of the residents of Hornsby Shire, both past and present.
At our monthly meeting tomorrow, 21 September at 2:00pm in Hornsby Library Mari Metzke from The Hornsby Shire Historical Society Inc will join us as our guest speaker to tell us about the Society, its resources and how it can help our members add to the stories of their ancestors from our area.
We will endeavour to organise a tour of the facilities of The Hornsby Shire Historical Society Inc in our eductional program for 2017.
