As a community access point for the State Archives and Records Authority of NSW, our Search Room also has the Archives Resources Kit (ARK) freely available to the public.

The ARK contains numerous family history resources, consisting of microfilm and microfiche copies of highly sought after colonial records e.g. Shipping and Immigration Lists, Births, Deaths and Marriage Indexes, and Convict Records.

We also have a number of complementary resources including: regional newspapers, NSW and Victorian Government Gazettes, local Anglican church registers, and a small library of local history books.
