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. This is not the fault of the researcher, as often the information is not available. Several visits to the library may be necessary to complete the research as par as possible. You may be advised to contact other organisations for further research.

Enquiries will automatically be placed in the group newsletter.

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. A stamped self addressed envelope must be included for your reply.

Enquiries should contain what you are specifically looking for. A request such as "Can I have all that you have on John Citizen and his family" does not really help.
