Family History
Burwood Library has research material and access to databases to trace family history. You may also be able to get help from members of the Burwood and District Family History Group. Burwood and District Family History Group was formed in 1988 to assist members in their family history research by providing a meeting place for genealogists and family historians to pursue their common interests. We have a range of resources and with the combined experience of our members can assist family historians to trace their ancestors. Burwood Library has free access to “Find My Past”, a genealogy search program, on site.

Visitors are welcome to come to our meetings held in the Burwood Library on the first Saturday of the month. Click here for our agenda and information about upcoming events and workshops.
