Family history & genealogy

The Kempsey Library branch has a computer set up in the Reference Room solely for genealogy use.

It may be used for family history searches and for accessing early Australian records and other records from the late 1700s to the early to mid 1900s. You can also search for Births, Deaths and Marriages information and conduct general internet searching.

The computer is also connected to a Canon Microfilm Scanner 350II, which lets you view, print and save (as a picture) and document what you need from our collection of microfilm and microfiche.

Below are some resources to get you started in finding family history and other records.
