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.
The support of members is vital to the operation of the Illawarra Family History Group. Members receive the quarterly journal Illawarra Branches, and are entitled to reduced research rates. New members and visitors are welcome at meetings which are held at 7.30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month, except January, in the Old Wollongong Courthouse, corner of Harbour Street and Cliff Road, Wollongong.
