Welcome to the CDFHS

The Campbelltown District Family History Society is located in Campbelltown, New South Wales, Australia and was founded on 1st August 1989 following several meetings of those interested in researching their family’s history. Our Founding President was Kevin Wall.

The Society continues to promote research into Family History by providing a range of resources for the use of all in the Local Studies and Family History section of the H. J. Daley Library, Hurley St, Campbelltown, NSW.

On the first Saturday each month, except in January, we meet at 1.30pm in the Library’s Meeting Room #1, where a wide variety of guest speakers have informed, entertained and stimulated both members and visitors alike throughout the years. Each year we hold our Annual BBQ to coincide with the Christmas (December) meeting and is held at Cataract Dam, located approximately 30km south of Campbelltown.

Come along and join us at our meetings. Visitors are always welcome.

Check the Events page for updates on our Guest Speakers and their topics.
