Family History and Local History

Visit the Family History and Local History area at the State Library of New South Wales. Macquarie Street, Sydney. There are staff who can help you get started with your research as well as using our collections.

Programs: We run a ‘Researching your family history’ program for family history groups. The program is free and includes

  • introduction to our catalogues and eresources
  • advice on research strategies
  • an orientation tour

We can tailor the program to cover a specific topic for your group. The program runs for about 90 minutes. You will need to book. We also offer workshops and talks on different aspects of family history and local history. Check our Events page for details.
