The Bathurst Family History Group Inc. was founded in 1984 by a small number of people who wanted to help each other to make progress with their family history research.

Bathurst is the oldest inland settlement in Australia and is located about 200 km west of Sydney. This map shows the approximate area we cover.

Details of our meetings and events are published on our events page and in our journal ‘Carillon Chimes’ which is posted to all members and is available in the members only section of this website. The group holds formal meetings with a guest speaker and less formal research gatherings and workshops regularly.

All members have access to the group’s extensive range of resources including books and journals, microfiche, microfilm and CD-ROMs. Some publications are available on open access in the library but only financial members can use the material stored in the locked cupboards and the Group’s computers available on research days. Other indexes and resources are available in the members only section of this website.

If you would like to join our group, membership application details and sample information are available HERE

You are reminded that Membership fees of $25 are due for 2018/2019. See here for details
