Search Archive catalogue

Our Archives collection is located at Richmond Villa, 120 Kent Street, Sydney.

Within it you will find unpublished materials from Australia and overseas, such as:

  • family histories, biographies and family history research notes
  • family tree charts and compiled reports
  • photographs
  • birth death and marriage certificates - originals and transcriptions
  • original records such as wills, indentures, licences and other legal documents
  • family papers such as letters, diaries and journals
  • cemetery transcriptions, burial registers, plans and burial butts
  • business records and ledgers
  • scrapbooks
  • records of the Society’s operations and activities.

The collection was set up in 1963 to house donated material. It is a treasure trove of materials which could help you with your family history research. 

The significance of the collection lies in the volume of unique, unpublished material in a single collection, the broad range of record types and the fact that the majority of the materials have known provenance.
