Welcome to the online home of the Cooroy-Noosa Genealogical & Historical Research Group Inc. We began in July 1996 with the aim of collecting, promoting and encouraging the study of genealogy, heritage and local history.
Visitors and researchers are invited to peruse our extensive library of books, Australian and overseas records, journals, maps and indexes on CD and microfiche.
Our air conditioned research area is equipped with networked computers using the latest subscription sites on the internet.
Members and visitors enjoy access to our large collection of resources with experienced researchers on hand to share knowledge and pave the way for a novice to gain confidence and continue searching independently.
Workshops and lectures provide further education and entertainment in a pleasant environment. Social events create friendship and relaxation.
The Group’s local history collection includes publications, oral histories, school records, photos and memorabilia dating back to earlier days in our region.Reading, photocopying and refreshment facilities are available.
For many years, a focus of the Group has been to develop a centre for Genealogical and Historical Research. The plans are well underway. Below is an artist's impression of the proposed building, to be situated in Emerald Street.
The Group is still busily fundraising. Should you wish to support the Group, all donations are gratefully accepted. A form to donate can be downloaded here.
