Local and family history

   Searching family history

Family History Centre

Carnegie Library and Community Centre – Tech Room

Thursdays 1pm – 3pm 

Have you always wanted to trace your family history and didn’t know how to start? Have you made a start, but then hit a roadblock?

Then come along to our weekly sessions where you will have access to great online resources and free computer use. Staff can offer guidance on the resources available.

Library staff cannot undertake extensive research for individuals. The workshop  is a resource for individuals tracing their own family history.

Limited numbers apply and bookings are essential.  


Bookings can be made for single weekly sessions, up to seven days in advance. Bookings can be made online*, at any Glen Eira Library or contact 9524 3700.




 Preserving your personal collections

From antiques and military medals to documents and photographs, many of us have collections of personally significant materials but may be unsure about the best way to look after them.
