UPDATES - The group has recently created a brand new historical database to provide a collection of photographic, video and audio material that has been given over the years. The aim is to categorise any information previously collected so as future generations can easily search for details about their own family history and previous events . It is still early days but we will be seeking funding and volunteers to manage the new database with the hope of making the collection available on-line. We would like to take this opportunity to thankthe members and sponsors for your continued support which has made these projects possible. In the meantime do not forget the group has access to the old Island History Trust collection in digital format. Should you require assistance in searching for your own family history or specific places please feel free to contact us oruse the links below.
The History Room will soon be undergoing a bit of a refurbishment, nothing major, just a general clear up and cosmetic spring clean. It is expected this will happen week beginning Aug 22 and will give a more comfortable environment for all historical groups wishing to use the room.
