Welcome to the Logan River and District Family History Society Inc.
We are a friendly group of people from the Logan area who like to research and preserve the history of our ancestors and the area we now call home. Some of our members have links to the early settlers in the district and so have valuable family history to share. Others have moved here in more recent times and bring with them customs and stories from different cultures from all over the world.
Yes, you can research from home as long as you have a computer and have joined a research company but being a Society member gives you the knowledge to research efficiently and correctly and the advantage of friendly help and advice. Our rostered Librarians are experienced in checking the validity of research and can help if you hit a 'brickwall'.
As a financial member you have free access to Ancestry and Find My Past while in our library, as well as the hundreds of CD’s and publications in our library. Only financial members have a website user account where they can access our online content: indexes, latest journal, etc.
Also members can choose to help with research work, preparing publications and collating family histories in many different forms, mostly involving the Logan area.
We have visiting speakers at our meetings and periodically plan group day trips to interesting history related sites. Library hours and meeting times can be found here.
If you would like to join us, please send us an email or drop in and see us.
