Mark Twain once said, “Why waste your time and money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you!” For many of us though, researching our family tree is a labour of love.
If you are keen to start researching your own family heritage, Hurstville City Library has a free research database that can help you trace your family tree. Find my Past is a genealogy research tool that provides access to a wide range of resources such as: birth/death/marriage indexes; parish records; military records; migration records; occupation records and electoral rolls. This database can only be accessed within Hurstville City Library, with a valid library card.
Good luck with your research and let us hope you uncover many interesting family skeletons! Rayyan.
