RESEARCH:

Income is derived from membership and research fees which are used to purchase additional records.

All members of the group are volunteers and take up various positions within the group.

The research officer spends a great deal of time viewing records, often with little or no results, as often the information may not be available. You may be advised to contact other organisations to further your research.

Source references are shown with replies i.e. cemetery, school or passenger lists. We cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made in official records.

The YPFHG request an 'up front fee' of $25 plus a stamped self-addressed envelope for your reply.

Enquiries should contain what you are specifically looking for.
