The Hornsby Shire Family History Group has been established as a community group generously supported by The Hornsby Shire Library & Information Service.
In 2014 the Library’s Local Studies Coordinator, Neil Chippendale contacted several interested members of the community to discuss the formation of a genealogy or family history group. A small group of volunteers collaborated and discussed issues while Neil and Karen Richardson from the library investigated options, garnered support from Hornsby Council and set a date for an inaugural meeting on 25 February 2015.
The volunteer organisers are most grateful for the generous support of Hornsby Council who are making meeting rooms available to the Group and providing support with printing, promotional materials and publicity.
After just four months our Group has 55 members.
