Who are we?  In May 1996,  Merle Collins group of like minded people joined together and formed a family history research community group.  This group became known as Wonthaggi Genealogy Inc.

We are a completely self-help group run entirely by volunteers who freely give their time and efforts to assist others.  Members have worked hard to provide their own research facilities.

Resources  WGI has built up an extensive resource collection of Books, Cd’s and microfiche covering a wide range of subjects relating to family history research.

We have a bank of modern, up-to-date computers which are all connected to the internet with subscriptions to ancestry.com and Find My Past online services.  

The Internet is a wonderful research tool and our volunteer duty members can help you navigate relevant sites.

Newsletters   WGI publish newsletters and encourages contributions from members pertaining to family history research or other related topics.

Members  Members have free use of our facilities with a very small cost for printing.  Use of memory sticks, Ipads and other suitable, relevant electronic devices is encouraged.  

Non Members  Non members may use our facilities for a cost of $20 per day.  

Research Queries  We have Research Officers who will undertake searches for those who cannot visit our Research Centre.  The fee is $20 per initial inquiry plus costs for photocopying of records or information.
