Dear Members,

It is time once again to report on the activities of the Campbelltown District Family History Society, over the past twelve months. New face on the committee along with the familiar faces of the committee members have steered us into a very busy year.

A big thank you must go to Ann Tribolet, our Publicity Officer for her informative talks on Australian WW1 ANZACS.

Denise Baxter, our Social Secretary has provided very interesting speakers, one being Professor Michael Gillings who gave an excellent presentation on DNA genes, riveting all to their seats.

Pam Shea, our Secretary just keeps on keeping on with a highly professional standard in regards to correspondence.

Jillian Murphy, our Membership Officer has done a marvelous job with the members records.  We have had an increase of eleven new members since March 2016.

David Beddie our Magazine Editor, treasurer and Organizer/Speaker for our courses has done an excellent job in all of his positions.

Robert Palmer, Volunteer Co-Ordinator and Webmaster has done an awesome job organizing rosters and volunteers at the Library.

Research Officers, Esma Hannah and Sharon Greene also have done a great job.  Sharon has started a Blog on our Website as well.

Gail Algie, our Librarian has also done a great job providing the books and CDs at each meeting.

Looking into the future we plan to conduct a seminar next year and extend our outings to a possible three per year.

Once again I thank all the Committe and Society members for all their hard work and help with our Society.


Mick Murphy
