The Central Coast Family History Society (Australia) was formed in 1981 when a small group began to meet over coffee to exchange ideas regarding research into their family histories. As interest grew, and membership increased it became necessary for a more formal approach, thus the first election of Officers was held in April, 1983.
Meetings averaging seventy with ninety being registered in February 2001. Since that time meetings have been held at a variety of venues as the Society continued to expand.
The need became apparent for the provision of resource material covering matters pertinent to members’ research. As a result, the Society commenced the publication of various guides which have now been replaced by the Handy Solution series.
