The Women of The Illawarra: from Settlement to Suffrage Project is being run by the Illawarra Family History Group. Its aim is to acknowledge women as pioneers in the Illawarra and show how they have been important in the development of the Illawarra. The project is to study the role that women played in the period from settlement to 1902 when women were granted the right to vote.

The Illawarra Family History Group was formed in 1984 to encourage the study of family history, particularly in the Illawarra area, and to assist members in the quest for their ancestors no matter where they came from.
Here are some examples of the stories that the project aims to collect.
The best way that you can get involved in the Illawarra Women project is to send us your stories about your ancestors and relatives.
