It’s a makeover of the original ‘A History of the Tilligerry Peninsula’ and is more family focused on those settlers who took up land in and around the upper reaches of Tilligerry Creek from the 1850s onwards.

The first imprint (1996) of some 600 copies sold out quickly and the second edition of 500 are all but gone.

The third edition will be larger, more comprehensive and will include additional information which has come to light in the interim.

The society currently boasts some ten publications.

All details on its journals and activities can be found by punching in ‘Port Stephens Family History Society Inc.’ on your search engine.

For personal family history research, the Society is open on Thursdays between 10am and 2pm or Saturday by appointment at their rooms at the Old School Site on the hill behind the Bowling Club.

Peter Brown from Lemon Tree Passage is currently making use of the facilities to dig deeper into the roots of his family tree.

The wealth of CDs, shipping records, microfiche and access to Ancestry Institution which are on hand have made his task a lot easier.
