The Dugullumba Times is the official Quarterly Journal of the Logan River and District Family History Society and was first published in February 2007.

We wanted a name for our journal that would link to an area of Logan City and after speaking with members of our local Aboriginal Community it was suggested we use Dugullumba, which means "place of the hornet" and is linked to part of the Logan River at Eagleby.

Our journal has stories written by our members, these contributions are about their family history, their search for a hard-to-find ancestor, and also articles about facets of local history. Each year a trophy, the Helen Kent Memorial Shield, is given to the writer of the best story published.

The journal also lists the new additions to our library as well as important dates, upcoming events and general news.
